Asymmetric transmission without breaking time reversal symmetry: anomalous diffraction vs polarization conversion
Andriy E Serebryannikov

Last modified: 2012-01-03


Two mechanisms of reciprocal but strongly asymmetric transmission are compared in the framework of the multichannel/multiport theory. The corresponding performances are based on either photonic crystals or (quasi)planar chiral arrays that are made of linear isotropic materials. Realizable transmission regimes, conditions of existence, and peculiarities of design are discussed.
