Abstract
We present precise expressions for the spatial and angular Goos-Hanchen and Imbert-Fedorov shifts experienced by a longitudinally and transversally limited beam of light (wavepacket) upon reflection from a dielectric interface, as opposed to the well-known case of a monochromatic beam which is bounded in transverse directions but infinitely extended along the direction of propagation. This is done under the assumption that the detector time is longer than the temporal length of the wavepacket (wavepacket regime). Our results will be applied to the case of a Gaussian wavepacket and show that, at the leading order in the Taylor expansion of reflected field amplitudes, the results are the same as in the monochromatic case.
