Paper Abstract

In this paper we examine the role of chirality on electromagnetic wave propagation in discrete random chiral composites. The composite is modeled as effectively chiral even though the medium is not chiral. The inclusion phase is randomly distributed and is associated with a chiral material constant (meters) which exists due to the handedness of the material. The effect of this parameter on the propagation of the em wave in an effectively chiral medium is examined.
