SURFACE WAVE MODES IN CHIRAL NEGATIVE REFRACTION GROUNDED SLAB WAVEGUIDES

By J.-F. Dong

Full Article PDF (310 KB)

Abstract:
μThe surface wave modes in the chiral negative refraction grounded slab waveguides in which the slab or cladding consists of chiral negative refraction metamaterial are investigated. The dispersion relations, electromagnetic fields, energy flow distribution and the total power of surface wave modes are presented. Some novel features have been found. The energy flow of surface wave mode is in opposite directions in the core and cladding. The total power is negative (corresponds to backward wave) in the grounded chiral negative refraction metamaterial slab waveguides.
