Abstract:
High frequency field expressions are derived at the focal points of a paraboloidal reflector placed in a homogenous and reciprocal chiral medium. Firstly Geometrical Optics (GO) field expressions are derived for the paraboloidal reflector placed in chiral medium. As the GO fails at the focal points, so Maslov's method has been used to find the field expressions which are also valid around the focal point. By using hybrid space, Maslov's method combine the simplicity of ray theory and the generality of Fourier Transform method. Some numerical results including contour plots and line plots around the focal region of paraboloidal reflector placed in chiral medium are obtained using the derived expressions.
