We study the beam reflection from a layered structure with a left-handed metamaterial. We predict a giant lateral (Goos-Hänchen) shift and splitting of the beam due to the resonant excitation of surface polaritons with a vortexlike energy flow between the right- and left-handed materials. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    Microstructuring of Si with XeF2 can be optimized by increasing the contrast in choosing a wavelength with minimal nonselective etching. The efficiency of selective etching with optimal quality can be increased by factors of 100 and 500 by using wavelengths around 120 and 110 nm, respectively,...
