CHARACTERISTICS OF GUIDED MODES IN PLANAR CHIRAL NIHILITY META-MATERIAL WAVEGUIDES

By J.-F. Dong and C. Xu

Full Article PDF (351 KB)

Abstract:
The characteristics of guided modes in the planar waveguides which the core or cladding consists of chiral nihility meta-materials are studied theoretically. The dispersion curves, electromagnetic fields, energy flow distribution and the power of several low-order guided modes in the chiral nihility waveguides are presented. Some novel features such as anomalous dispersion curves, the power flows opposite to the wave vector propagation direction in the chiral nihility waveguides have been found.
