Paraboloidal Reflector in Chiral Medium Supporting Simultaneously Positive Phase Velocity and Negative Phase Velocity
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 92, 223-234, 2009
Abstract
Focused high frequency electromagnetic waves reflected from a PEC paraboloidal surface placed in homogeneous, reciprocal and isotropic medium with high chirality parameter are analyzed. The value of the chirality parameter is set such that it simultaneously supports modes of negative and positive phase velocities. Present work is an extension of the previous work, in which the chiral medium supports only positive phase velocity. Using the previous derived expressions, line plots in the focal region are obtained.
