When the real parts of the permittivity and the permeability dyadics of a structurally chiral, magnetic-dielectric material are reversed in sign, the circular Bragg phenomenon displayed by the material is proved here to suffer a change which indicates that the structural handedness has been, in effect, reversed. Additionally, reflection and transmission coefficients suffer phase reversal.
