TORRES-SILVA, Héctor. CHIRAL WAVES IN A METAMATERIAL MEDIUM. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.especial, pp.119-122. ISSN 0718-3305. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052008000400017.
In this paper we study the anomalous refraction at the boundary of a metamaterial medium with strong chirality. The fact that for a time-harmonic monochromatic plane wave the direction of the Poynting vector is antiparallel with the direction of phase velocity, leads to exciting features that can be advantageous in the design of novel devices and components at microwaves frequencies.
