Abstract:

Waveguiding in a thin-film helicoidal bianistropic medium TFHBM layer is investigated. A dielectric TFHBM layer bounded by isotropic dielectric half-spaces is shown to support guided wave propagation with guide wavenumbers dependent on the direction of signal propagation, thus signalling potential use as a spaceguide. The modal fields and power transmission distributions associated with the guided modes in the proposed TFBBM interconnects are detailed.
