Abstract

The microwave reflection characteristics of a planar archiral-chiral interface have been examined by setting the transmitted electromagnetic field in the chiral half-space in terms of left and right circularly polarized waves. The reflected field in the achiral half-space is seen to be circularly polarized. Numerical data show that by utilizing refracting media with chiral microgeometries an increase or a decrease in the reflected power can be effected. 14 refs.
