Transverse Shifts in Paraxial Spinoptics    [PDF]

C. Duval, P. A. Horvathy, P. M. Zhang
The paraxial approximation of a classical spinning photon is shown to yield
an "exotic particle" in the plane transverse to the propagation. The previously
proposed and observed position shift between media with different refractive
indices is modified when the interface is curved, and there also appears a
novel, momentum [direction] shift. The laws of thin lenses are modified
