Abstract:

During the past years we have intensively studied basic properties and field solutions in homogeneous bianisotropic media. We started from simple isotropic media to ever more general bianisotropic media. This study has led to some classification of bianisotropic media, which resembles a pedigree. The pedigree contains two branches. The first branch are so called self-dual media, these are generalizations of the chiral medium. The second branch are factorizable media, these are generalisations of the uniaxial anisotropic media. We think to have reached some consensus with respect to the pedigree, i.e. we think to have found the most general media in each of the two branches.
