The basics of weak measurement and its various applications are discussed here. The optical analogue of weak measurement. which was predicted by E C G Sudarshan was also demonstrated with the experimental results. The optical activity of chiral molecules is also calculated with the help of weak measurement. We also demonstrate simultaneous weak value amplification of both the angular GH and the IF shifts in partial reflection of a fundamental Gaussian beam at planar dielectric interfaces. We employ pre and post selection schemes with appropriate linear polarization basis states for simultaneous weak measurements and amplification of both of these shifts.We also studied these GH and IF shifts for higher order beams (for example Vortex beams)and how its get coupled. Geometric Hall effect of light is also studied with the help of weak measurement and we get the expected nature according to the theory.
