Abstract

We consider the electromagnetic field due to the reflection and transmission of a plane wave by a bounded periodic structure containing chiral layers. The problem is solved using the 2 × 2 -block-representation transfer-matrix formulation. The frequency and angular dependences of the reflection and transmission coefficients are given. The boundaries of the passbands and stopbands are determined from the basic-element transfer-matrix eigenvalue analysis.
