Abstract

We report on the propagation of plane electromagnetic waves through a complex dielectric medium consisting of two complementary grating structures: a sinusoidal interface between two isotropic dielectric mediums overlaying a structurally chiral anisotropic dielectric medium. Phenomenons characteristic of both types of structures - namely the Rayleigh-Wood anomalies and the circular Bragg phenomenon are shown to coexist, even at wavelengths where both occur together. Our results open the possibility of novel device geometries which exploit these effects.
