Physical Optics


The effect of antimirror reflection from a bounded planar optical waveguide is considered. Earlier, it was used for observing the slow light in a Bragg waveguide. Using the proposed theory of this effect, experimentally observed spectral (Gaussian line shape) and angular (Lorentzian angular distribution) properties of the radiation scattered by the bounded waveguide in the antimirror direction are interpreted.
