Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The first-order propagation (in v/c) of electromagnetic waves in moving isotropic chiral media is studied. The present analysis is based on Maxwell's equations, Bohren decomposition and Minkowski's relations taken to the first order in the velocity. Accordingly, the effect of acceleration on the electromagnetic fields is neglected, thus yielding a new model for solving problems involving moving chiral media. This new model is demonstrated for a simple and constructive example, i.e., transmission and reflection of a plane wave from a plane boundary separating between a stationary simple medium and a moving chiral medium.
