EXOTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF POWER PROPAGATION IN THE CHIRAL NIHILITY FIBER

By J.-F. Dong

Full Article PDF (326 KB)

Abstract:
The novel characteristics of power propagation of guided modes in the chiral nihility fiber have been investigated theoretically. The formulas of electromagnetic fields in the core and cladding for guided modes are presented in detail. The dispersion equations, energy flux and power of guided modes are derived. The numerical results are given and discussed. Some exotic features of power propagation have been found in the chiral nihility fiber.
