The theory of the propagation of TEM-pulses in dispersive bi-isotropic slabs

Rikte, Sten LU (1999) In Wave Motion 29(1). p.1-21
Abstract
A survey of the theory of propagation of transient transverse electromagnetic waves in temporally dispersive, bi-isotropic slabs is given, and a novel wave splitting, which completely separates right-going and left-going waves in the dispersive medium, is proposed. The new approach leads to a simple scattering relation in terms of wave propagators and single-interface scattering operators only. These temporal integral operators are related to the four time-dependent susceptibility kernels of the medium through non-linear Volterra equations of the second kind. In a subsequent paper, the corresponding inverse scattering problem is addressed on the basis of the new results.
