Paper Abstract

We extend the Green's function integral method to investigate the propagation of electromagnetic waves through an anisotropic dielectric-magnetic slab. From a microscopic perspective, we analyze the interaction of wave with the slab and derive the propagation characteristics by self-consistent analyses. Applying the results, we find an alternative explanation to the general mechanism for the photon tunneling. The results are confirmed by numerical simulations and disclose the underlying physics of wave propagation through slab. The method extended is applicable to other problems of propagation in dielectric-magnetic materials, including metamaterials.
