Abstract
An exact matrix polynomial series solution for oblique propagation in chiral sculptured thin films and chiral smectic liquid crystals is analyzed. The convergence of the series is investigated via calculations for a range of wavelengths, incidence angles, and material parameters. Implementation of this method is compared with the piecewise uniform permittivity approximation method.
