Abstract
Explicit expressions are derived for the like and cross linear polarized reflection and transmission coefficients in terms of the chiral parameter. Taylor series expansions of these coefficients are derived. The diagonal like polarized reflection and transmission coefficients are insensitive to the chiral properties of the material while the off diagonal cross polarized terms are proportional to the chiral parameter to first order. Continuity relations in and perpendicular to the plane of incidence for vertically and horizontally like and cross polarized waves, energy conservation and duality relations at a free space-chiral interface are satisfied. Applications for the optimal detection and identification of chiral materials such as drugs and biological or chemical threat agents are considered.
