Abstract

In this paper a theoretical investigation of electromagnetic field transmission through dielectric plano convex lens placed in chiral medium is analyzed. The chiral medium is described electromagnetically by the constitutive relations D = ε(E+γ∇×E) and B = μ(H+γ∇×H). Transmission's coefficients for chiral-dielectric and dielectric-chiral interfaces are derived analytically. The analytical field expressions for right circularly polarized (RCP) and left circularly polarized (LCP) waves are obtained using Maslov's method. Numerical computations are made for the field patterns around the caustic region using Mathcad software to observe the effect of chirality parameter.
