Abstract

Erratum.

© 2008 Optical Society of America

Some presentational errors appeared in [1

1. T.G. Mackay and A. Lakhtakia, “Theory of light emission from a dipole source embedded in a chiral sculptured thin film,” Opt. Express 15, 14689–14703 (2007). [CrossRef] [PubMed]

].

(i) Eq. (14) should read as:

ddz[f(z,κ,ψ,ω)]=i[P(z,κ,ψ,ω)][f(z,κ,ψ,ω)]+[g(z,κ,ψ,ω)],z(L,L),
(14)

(ii) The line preceding Eq. (16) should read as:

“and [g(z,κ,ψ,ω)]=-(p/2)δ(z-d)[(z,κ,ψ,ω)] where”

and in Eq. (16) the term [g(z,κ,ψ,ω)] should be replaced by the term [(z,κ,ψ,ω)].

(iii) Eq. (20) should read as:

[f(L,κ,ψ,ω)]=[M(L,κ,ψ,ω)][f(L,κ,ψ,ω)]
iωp2[M(L,κ,ψ,ω)][M(d,κ,ψ,ω)]1[g˜(d,κ,ψ,ω)]
(20)

(iv) In the sentence following Eq. (20), the term [M(2L,κ,ψ,ω)] should be replaced by the term [M(L,κ,ψ,ω)]; and the term [M(d+L,κ,ψ,ω)] should be replaced by the term [M(d,κ,ψ,ω)].

(v) In Eqs. (29) and (30), the exp[(x cosψ +y sinψ)] terms should be deleted.

(vi) In Ref. [6], “sculptured” is misspelt.

(vii) The fourth occurrence of ω in Eq. (22) and the comma preceding it should be deleted.

(viii) Seven lines after Eq. (40), “right–handed” is misspelt.

The authors regret these errors, which do not effect any of the numerical results presented or conclusions reached in [1
