Abstract:

The methods of geometrical optics are extended so that they may be applied to gyrotropic bodies. Various internal and external reflections are considered at non parallel planar interfaces and means of determining the ray path or directions of energy flow are derived. Non-planar geometrics may be represented by the tangent planes at the various points of incidence. A method is given for computing the phases of the various fields. These values may be used to determine the reflected fields from such a gyrotropic body.
