Abstract:

We consider and compare three different cases of anisotropy compensation in chiral media. The first case concerns natural crystals or nonmagnetic superlattices, the second case is the class of stratified-periodic structures, which are homogeneous media in the long-wave approximation and have simultaneously dielectric and magnetic properties. The third possible case can be realized as inhomogeneous structures with spiral anisotropy of dielectric and magnetic properties.
