Fresnel laws at curved dielectric interfaces of microresonators.

By Martina Hentschel and Henning Schomerus


We discuss curvature corrections to Fresnel�s laws for the reflection and transmission of light at a nonplanar refractive-index boundary. The reflection coefficients are obtained from the resonances of a dielectric disk within a sequential-reflection model. The Goos-Hänchen effect for curved light fronts at a planar interface can be adapted to provide a qualitative and quantitative extension of the ray model which explains the observed deviations from Fresnel�s laws
