The Goos—Hänchen (GH) effect, a longitudinal shift of a wave beam at total internal reflection, is well-known in optics and has been repeatedly observed for light, micro- and ultrasonic waves. This paper considers the GH effect for a massive particle reflected from a material boundary. A close relation is shown to exist between the longitudinal shift and reflection time delay. In the case of a neutron reflected from a planar resonant system, a giant longitudinal shift of either positive or negative sign can occur, corresponding to a large reflection group delay time. This time can also be negative, which is not inconsistent with the causality principle. Prospects for the experimental observation of the GH effect and group delay time for neutron reflection are reviewed.
