Abstract:

Definition of the notion of reaction in bianisotropic media is not so trivial. In this paper, we consider some important aspects of the physical admissibility to use the notion of the reaction as a physical observable in bianisotropic media. The questions also arise For what kinds of the known bianisotropic media the reciprocity theorem is physically applicable Based on what kind of the bianisotropic media, nonreciprocal microwave devices can be realized We will show that a novel class of microwave bianisotropic materials - magnetostatically controlled bianisotropic materials the MCBMs - are physically justified materials. The Onsager-Casimir principle and the notion of reciprocity are applicable in this case. New nonreciprocal microwave devices based on the MCBMs can be realized.
