Abstract

Sihvola’s observation [Sihvola, Opt. Lett. 19, 430 (1994)] of an analogy between various elements of the polarizability dyadics for anisotropic spheres and the polarizabilities of chiral spheres is critically examined. It is argued that this analogy is both physically and mathematically misconceived.

  3. A general bianisotropic medium is characterized through constitutive relations D¯=∊¯¯·E¯+ξ¯¯·H¯ and B¯=ζ¯¯·E¯+μ¯¯·H¯; an (electrically) anisotropic medium by D¯=∊¯¯·E¯ and B̄ = μ0H̄; and a chiral medium through D¯=∊E¯-jκ∊0μ0H¯ and B¯=jκ∊0μ0E¯+μH¯.
