The solution of a boundary-value problem for the reflection and transmission of obliquely incident plane waves due to a slab of a structurally chiral material (SCM) displaying the Pockels effect with a over(4, ̄) 2 m point group symmetry indicates the enhancement of circular Bragg phenomenon by the application of a dc voltage. The enhancement suggests that thinner SCMs can be used as devices such as polarization-rejection filters if the Pockels effect is exploited, for both normally and obliquely incident light.
