Abstract: In geometric optics, it is known that a light beam can undergo a peculiar spatial shift when reflected at an optical interface. The longitudinal and the transverse components of this shift are respectively known as the Goos-Hanchen and the Imbert-Fedorov effects. In recent years, analogous effects have been studied in context of electronic systems, which exhibit distinct features. In this talk, I will introduce our recent works, which discovered the shift in the process of Andreev reflection. Here, the shift occurs when an incident electron beam is reflected as a hole beam at a metal/superconductor junction interface. Interestingly, for unconventional superconductors, a sizable shift can exist and show characteristic behaviors for each pairing type. We further reveal a quantized physical quantity in this effect, i.e., the circulation of the shift in the interface momentum space. We show that the circulation can capture the topological charges in the band structures, such as Chern numbers for the Weyl or multi-Weyl points. The predicted effect is fundamental and ubiquitous, and it offers a promising tool to characterize topological materials and unconventional superconductors.
