Artificial Chiral Media Using Conical-Coil Wire Inclusions
Main Article Content
The electromagnetic response of the electrically small conical wire coil as a chiral inclusion is described. An existing model of the helical coil wire inclusion is extended to model the conical coil wire inclusion, using the Method of Moments (MoM) to determine the dominant resonant circuit impedance of the inclusion. Material parameters are determined using mixing relations with polarizability coefficients expressed for the conical coil inclusion geometry. The polarization conversion of a dielectric slab loaded with conical coil inclusions is predicted and compared to simulated results using a forward scattering technique.
