Abstract:

A new form for the modal eigenvalue equations of chiral-core planar waveguides provides insight into the transition, with increasing chirality, from TETM transverse electricmagnetic modes in the archiral ease to nearly right-handed and left-handed circularly polarized modes. Dramatic variation of the polarization eccentricity with thickness and frequency is discussed.
