Abstract

The fields inside a rectangular waveguide with an internal coating of chiral nihility metamaterial are determined. These fields are then fractionalized utilizing the fractional curl operator to find the fields for the intermediate geometries which are also termed as the fractional order geometries. It is noted that no electric field exists inside the chiral nihility coating backed by perfect electric conductor (PEC) surface. The fractional order geometries are related through the principle of duality. The behavior of the fields with respect to the fractional parameter, α is analyzed.
