Abstract

A LOD-like method that characterizes the analytical solution is proposed to study the one-dimensional (1-D) chiral media. Through theoretical analysis and numerical simulation, it is found that the proposed scheme is unconditionally stable. This scheme employs the new mesh-dividing method for bi-isotropic media, in which the two sections on the right side of the rearranged curl equations are regarded as two directions and the LOD-like algorithm is used to deal with the equivalent two-dimensional (2-D) problem. In the first substep, the conventional LOD method is used in computation, while for the second substep, the analytical solution is employed instead. By simulating the polarization rotation of a mono-frequency linear polarized wave both in a 1-D homogeneous chiral media and through a chiral slab, the scheme is testified to be unconditionally stable.
