Transverse coupling between two general biisotropic slabs

  • Yin Wenyan
  • Wang Wenbing


The general formulation for the determining of transverse coupling behaviour between two different biisotropic slabs is proposed based on the method of conventional field perturbation, and some special cases are considered. Since biisotropic medium is a generalization of the well-studied nonreciprocal and reciprocal chiral media, our results are suitable for much more cases.
