Polarization conversion of electromagnetic waves by Faraday chiral media

2010 Journal of Applied Physics  
The reflection of a normally incident plane wave due to the interface between vacuum and a Faraday chiral medium ͑FCM͒ supported by a perfect electric conductor was rigorously derived. Numerical results strongly indicated that arbitrary polarization conversions are realizable from the incident plane wave to the reflected plane wave by properly choosing the constitutive parameters of the FCM.
