Abstract
Following up on recent work involving investigation of polarization states and Fresnel coefficients (FCs) at an achiral/chiral (ACC) interface, this paper will consider extensions to the case of two interfaces whereby the front end will be ACC and the back end chiral/achiral (CAC) leading to entirely different optical characteristics. Specifically, the work examines the FCs for ACC and CAC, and explores the corresponding changes in the polarization states of the reflected and transmitted light-waves. Additionally, the paper tracks the nature of the transmission through the chiral slab and the emerging fields corresponding to linear as well as arbitrary input polarizations. Keeping in mind that left- and right-circular modes are characteristic of propagation in a chiral material, amplitude and power reflection and transmission characteristics are also examined for the device.
