Here I argue that Liu and Li [B.-Y. Liu, C.-F. Li, Opt. Commun. 281 (2008) 3427] reproduce calculations of the Imbert-Fedorov transverse shift previously made in a number of other works. However, it has recently been shown that these results are not valid for standard uniformly polarized beams. The corrected values of the Imbert-Fedorov shift were derived in papers [K.Y. Bliokh, Y.P. Bliokh, Phys. Rev. Lett. 96 (2006) 073903; Phys. Rev. E 75 (2007) 066609] and confirmed by recent measurements...[Show more]
