Abstract

Analysis is carried out for an alternating arrangement of laminae which have either uniaxial permittivity or uniaxial permeability dyadics. The unit cell is constructed of two laminae such that the ones with the uniaxial permittivity dyadic alternate with the ones with the uniaxial permeability dyadic through the stack. It is assumed that both dyadics have the same optic axis. The 4-vector method is utilized to construct a characteristic matrix for the two-lamina unit cell. After assuming that each lamina is electrically thin, the properties of an equivalent medium are obtained; both the permeability and the permittivity dyadics of the equivalent medium are biaxial.
