Paper Abstract

Voigt waves are shown to propagate in biaxial composite materials whose component phases do not support the propagation of Voigt waves. The relationship between the orientations of the singular axes (along which Voigt wave propagation can occur) and the distinguished axes of the component phases is investigated by means of both the Maxwell Garnett and the Bruggeman homogenization formalisms.
