Usual positive phase and group refraction for Pim-Pim.

This is the familiar positive refraction. Note how the front crosses the surface in such a way that Snell's law is satsfied. No part of the front stops or goes at odd speeds.
The next movie shows how a front can never cross from PIM to NIM so as to satisfy a negative Snell's law.
