We study experimentally the Goos–Hänchen effect observed at the reflection of a self-collimated beam from the surface of a two-dimensional photonic crystal and describe a method for controlling the beam reflection through surface engineering. The microwave photonic crystal, fabricated from alumina rods, allows control of the output position of a reflected beam undergoing an internal Goos–Hänchen shift by changing the rod diameter at the reflection surface. The experimental data are in good agreement with the results of the finite-difference time-domain numerical calculations.
