The field distributions and dispersion characteristics of hybrid modes in circular chiro ferrite central-loaded waveguide are investigated numerically in this paper. Especially, the effects of constitutive parameters of chiro ferrite material on the propagation behaviour of hybrid modes are examined in detail, and some novel features are pointed out. The results show that, as reciprocal chiral and gyrotropic media, nonreciprocal chiroferrite materials have potential applications for the design of microwave, millimeter wave and integrated optical devices.
