An experimental study of beam shifts occurring in partial reflection from a planar dielectric interface is presented. A novel Goos-Hänchen–like shift in the regime below total reflection has been found depending on polarization, angle of incidence, and beam width. The shift is accompanied by an angular shift. The results match theoretical predictions based on the theory of moments of light beams.
