SEMI-INFINITE CHIRAL NIHILITY PHOTONICS: PARAMETRIC DEPENDENCE, WAVE TUNNELING AND REJECTION

By V. R. Tuz and C.-W. Qiu

Full Article PDF (554 KB)

Abstract:
The novel characteristics of wave transmission and reflection in one-dimensional semi-infinite chiral photonics have been investigated theoretically. Waves in each region have been formulated for both normal and oblique incidences. At a given incident angle, the transmission or reflection is found to be easily adjusted to be equal to 1 for the chiral photonics using chiral nihility media. The wave tunneling and rejection properties in chiral nihility photonics, as well as their parametric dependences on periodicity, chiral nihility and incident angles, have been explicitly presented theoretically and verified numerically.
