Abstract:
Maslov's method is used to derive the expressions for high frequency fields around the focal region of a paraboloidal reflector coated with isotropic and homogeneous chiral medium. The field expressions thus calculated are solved numerically, and the results are presented in the paper. Moreover, the dependency of the electric field on the thickness of the coated chiral medium and its properties is also studied. The results of this study are presented in the paper, and the conclusions are drawn accordingly.
