OK, both the infinite plane wave and infinite dielectric are unphysical.
However, consider a finite but very wide flattopped beam, and a finite
dielectric somewhat wider than the beam.
Calculating the torque due to absorption gives the same result as before,
P/w (we might disagree on this point!) and also shows that this torque is
evenly spread over the beam. The J=rxS/c school of thought claims that the
AM flux is P/w, and is localised at the edges. Something is wrong here,
for a sufficiently wide beam would require superluminal transport of AM
from the edges of the beam to the middle of the dielectric. You've already
pointed out the problem of what happens when the outer portion of the
dielectric is fixed, and the inner portion is free to rotate  torque due
to absorption tells you it will rotate, J=rxS/c says no. Clearly J=rxS/c
is wrong.
On the other hand, Humblet showed that it is possible to reconcile the
two, by showing that the integral of J=rxS/c gives the correct total AM,
under practical conditions, and gave an expression for the spin flux.
Now, the torque exerted on an object due to a change in circular
polarisation has been measured. Holbourn and Beth both did it, and their
results showed that a circularly polarised beam carries P/w AM. You say
"Not so!" due to the doublepass nature of Beth's experiment. I don't know
the details of Holbourn's experiment  his paper is very brief. Our own
experiments are singlepass, and show P/w to hold within a few percent.
OK, those aren't absorption experiments, and I can't think of any
directmeasurement absorption experiments. But how about:

Optical angularmomentum transfer to trapped absorbing particles

Optics Letters 22, 5254 (1997)
where it was shown that the spin flux is P/w if the orbital angular
momentum flux of vortex beams is lP/w, where l is the "charge" of the
singularity.
For your prediction of total torque due to absorption to be 2P/w, this
would require the orbital AM flux of a vortex beam to be double as well,
equal to 2lP/w. Is this compatible with your theory?

My reply is:
Dear Mathias Schubert:
Sorry, you criminally try to hush up serious mistakes of R. Loudon, A.
Bishop and others. You will share the disgrace of journals that deny
spin in the classical electrodynamics. I do not need your favorable
report. I need a report of a peerreview process.
The editor's message was:
"Dear Dr. Khrapko:
After editorial reviewing of your paper, I have decided that the
content of your paper is not suitable for publication in the Journal of
the Optical Society of America A. A paper is acceptable for publication
in JOSA A only if the reviewers are convinced that, in addition to
being correct technically, it also adds a new and important result to
the field. Considering the history of scientific journal disapprovals
of the materials of your paper it obviously does not meet the criterion
of JOSA A. Thank you for submitting your paper to JOSA A. I regret that
it is not possible to send you a more favorable report on this
manuscript, and I hope that you will continue to consider JOSA A for
future submissions."

How it works with the complex index



Present index theory is wrong.
With the right theory it is possible to decribe the Nimtz double prism
experiment. Main result:
Light can pass forbiden regions with velocities faster than the speed of
light limit c. Nimtz double
prism experiment is nothing else than macroscopic electrodynamics. Many
former publicatios
on measurement of superluminal effects are true. These experimentators have
been shot out by
the velocity not faster than c dogma which is proven to be wrong for
inhomogene wave superpositions.
With the right theory it is possible to get energy fluxes and energy
densities in metal layers. Two
things in the old Drude metall optics are wrong. the concept of vacuumlayers
eliminates unlogics
in the old theory. New so called tunnel fluxes in layers make energy
conservation understandable
at any surface between conductive substances.
Vacuum layers and tunnel fluxes are the main elements of the new theory of
complex index.
Even hard theoreticans now have to accept that complex dielectricity
constants exist.
Makroskopic electrodynamics becomes a strongly theoretical fundament of base
physics.
A formula for the spin flux, a second flux density in electrodynamics has
been developed.
This makes understandable that theoretical ununderstood effects and forces
occur when light
is passing matter. This spin forces are experimentally known since mid of
the 30s of the last century.
Now they can be calculated in terms of a strong theory. Spin forces occur
next to angular momentum forces
and momentum forces. Fundamental principle is: Spin is generally not
conserved when passing surfaces. This
non conservation can be calculated from index theory. But there is existing
a conservation law for the complete
angular momentum transfer everywhere in substances. This principle makes it
possible to calculate the forces.
There are to be distinguished volume and surface forces (momenta).
Magnetism is electronically induced. A strong phänomenological theory for
dia  and paramagnetism has been found.
This complete bundle can be the base for a new chapter in classical
electrodynamics of electromagnetic
waves which is in accordands with fundamental quantum concepts.
Invitation to dicussions welcomed.

Only formula

Even considering edge effects? Consider a beam narrow than the waveplate.
The longitudinal part of the Poynting vector cancels due to the
counterpropagation, but the azimuthal parts do not  the handedness of
the polarisation about the direction of propagation is reversed on
reflection, so the direction of the angular momentum about an axis fixed
wrt the apparatus is the same, so the azimuthal parts _add_ due to the
counterpropagation.
Without edge effects, J=spintensor gives the Beth result.
Other than that, J=ExA also works, for a suitable choice of A. For any
choice of A, Humblet's general result (including the orbital term) works.
Oh, my ears and whiskers! Dear Timo, why are you not attentive as well

No, the azimuthal edgeeffect component of the counterpropagating beams
_adds_, not cancels. The longitudinal component cancels. But it's the
angular component that gives you the angular momentum.
Look, the azimuthal component of S at the edge of the beam depends of the
handedness of the circular polarisation of the beam. The handedness is
changed, along with the direction of propagation, by reflection from a
mirror. Hold your hands in front of you, touch the tips of your thumbs

Quote:  This paper confirms my theory. The point is their particles occupied
the hole of the donut and the region where \partial u^2 > 0 and thus
the torque acts opposite to the beam polarization handedness.
Therefore, in the absence of spintensor, an absorbing particle must
rotate slower if the beam is changed to circularly polarized of the
same sense as the helicity of the donut, contrary to their result. Only
spintensor forces the particle to rotate faster.
Well, yes, it's a disproof of the J=rxS/c school of thought. The Humblet
decomposition also explains it. See below for further

Yes, this is for one of the special cases. Try it for a LaguerreGauss

This is why you say J=L+S=2P/w, while others say J=S=P/w. For a finite

but they'd write J=L=P/w.
I think the important point is that your spin tensor gives the correct

My dear Timo. I hide nothing. Contrary, I show, show, show during 7 
years, but without a result. If you read my papers or "Classical
Electrodynamics" by J. D. Jackson, you will see that there is NO
singularity in our calculations. Our result is independent of the
profile of the beam.
You wrote me
"From: Timo Nieminen (timo@physics.uq.edu.au)

The AM flux can be found by many methods, including, but not limited
to:

(2) finding the AM flux of, for example, a Gaussian beam and taking the
limit as the width infinity"
I answered to you 3 years ago, on 20030713:
"A profile of beam (distribution on a crosssection) is of no
importance"
You can easily see that an explicit form of the function E_0(x,y) is
not in the use and the E and H fields are parallel everywhere. So, the
Poynting vector is zero and Maxwell electrodynamics is incomplete
Nevertheless I used the Gaussian beam in a paper "The Beth experiment
is under review" (www.scoprint.org,
www.mai.ru/projects/mai_works/articles/num21/article6/auther.htm) and
got the result. Unfortunately, this paper was rejected by APP, EPL, FP,

My dear Timo. This is NOT for one of the special cases. One of their 
terms is zero for their common case, and other term, \int (ExA), equals
the whole expression, \int rx(ExH), and represents orbital AM, L = \int
rx(ExH), because spin in the sense of the word as used in the field
theory is absent in Maxwell electrodynamics. If you read my papers or
"Classical Electrodynamics" by J. D. Jackson, you will see that our
results are independent of the profile of the beam. You can easily see
that an explicit form of the function E_0(x,y) or u(x,y) is not in the
use.
Nevertheless I used the Gaussian beam in a paper "Defects of the
general field theory" (V2). (www.scoprint.org). Unfortunately, this
paper was rejected by MPEJ, JMP, IJTP, NJP, JPA, PRL, PLA.
However, your recommendation, "Try it for a LaguerreGauss beam
carrying orbital AM" is senseless because Humblet and others did NOT
consider Laguerre beams. Nevertheless, a LaguerreGauss beam obviously
carries two different orbital AM.
Quote:

OK! You agree that the term is zero about the beam axis for a Gaussian 
or flattop beam and thus you confirm the fictitious division of the
orbital angular momentum L = \int rx(ExH). I showed it in a paper
"Electrodynamics' spin" (www.sciprint.org) rejected by AJP, PLA, JPA,
PRA, JMP, NJP, OC, PRL, IJTP, CMP.
Quote:  What we see?! You write, "All agree that spin=P/w for a circularly
polarised plane wave."! And what about your formula J=\int rxS/c?
J = \int rxS/c = P/w. Humblet et al say that J=S in this case (ie L=0,
since Humblet's "orbital" term is zero, as you note above). You are saying
the orbital AM density is rxS/c, yes? Thus, that L = \int rxS/c = P/w.
This is why you say J=L+S=2P/w, while others say J=S=P/w. For a finite
beam, even those who say that the _only_ AM flux density is rxS/c agree,
but they'd write J=L=P/w.
J = \int rx(ExH)/c = P/w holds only in Maxwell electrodynamics and for 
a circularly polarized beam. But Maxwell electrodynamics is not
complete. In reality, J = \int rx(ExH)/c + spintensor = 2P/w for a
circularly polarized beam. Let us agree that moment of the Poynting
vector is an orbital AM, i.e. \int rx(ExH) = L forever. You must also
admit that Maxwell electrodynamics does not contain conception of spin
in the sense of the word as used in the field theory, i.e. S = 0, and J
= L in Maxwell electrodynamics. So, we must recognize that ExA is not
spin, and the Humblet's equality \int rx(ExH) = \int ExA holds, but is
senseless. Humblet et al. say that J=S by mistake in any case. Any
plane wave has neither spin nor orbital AM, and the beam has L = P/w, S
= 0, J = L in Maxwell electrodynamics. However, in reality, circularly
polarized plane wave has spin because the spintesor. The use a word
"spin" is unscientific in Maxwell electrodynamics. Nobody can agree
that spin=P/w for a circularly polarized plane wave in Maxwell
electrodynamics because of two reasons: the concept of spin is absent,
J = L =\int rx(ExH) = 0.
Quote: 
I think the important point is that your spin tensor gives the correct
result for the spin.
You must not write a word "spin". You do not know spin in the sense of 
the word as used in the field theory. You know only "spin" of a bike
wheel. You are an incorrigible Maxwellian physicist.
Quote:  Thus useful, and publishable. No, I don't think it

They claim, "A strict criterion for acceptance in this journal is that 
manuscripts must convey new physics". If they cannot read new physics,
they must change their criterion.
Honest people inquire unintelligible things. I had no questions.
Btw, Editors hide favorable reports. For example, Christian Brosseau
hid Reviewer 1 of "Optics Letters" who wrote: "The result, dealing with
matters at the heart of the rather confused matter of electromagnetic
angular momentum, is interesting and merits publication. The paper is
concise, and likely as clear as possible, given the subject matter."
Quote:  you run into referees who say "the only AM density is rxS/c, so it

Not only my referee, but also you say "the only AM density is rxS/c" 
because J = \int rx(ExH)/c = P/w is your formula.

I submitted a paper "Beth's experiment modification" to OL on 29 Jul

that will reflect the beam away from the apparatus. I predict that the
replacement will not change the result of the experiment. But Robert A.
