Full Article PDF (96 KB)

Abstract:
Fields inside the chiral nihility slab which is backed by perfect electric conductor are determined. It is noted that both electric and magnetic fields exist inside the grounded chiral nihility slab when it is excited by a plane wave. Electric field inside the slab disappears for excitation due to an electric line source. Magnetic field inside the slab disappears when geometry changes to corresponding dual geometry. Dual geometry means chiral nihility slab backed by perfect magnetic conductor and excited by a magnetic line source. Using fractional curl operator, fields are determined for fractional order geometries which may be regarded as intermediate step between the two geometries which are related through principle of duality. Discussion is extended for chiral nihility slab which is backed by perfect electromagnetic conductor (PEMC).
