Abstract

High frequency field expressions for a two dimensional reflector are derived. The reflector is placed in a homogenous and reciprocal chiral medium. Since geometrical optics fails at caustics so Maslovs method has been used to find the field expressions which are also valid around caustics. Examples of parabolic and circular reflectors have been considered.
