Parallel-plate waveguides consisting of a thin-film helicoidal bianisotropic medium (TFHBM) layer bounded by dielectric half-spaces are shown to support guided wave propagation with guide wavenumbers dependent on the direction of signal propagation. Thus, the TFHBM interconnect behaves as a space-guide. The modal fields and power transmission distributions, as determined by the time-averaged Poynting vector, are investigated and a scheme classifying each guided wave mode as either hybrid electric or hybrid magnetic is presented.
