Asymmetrical waves in a helix and a system of helices forming an artificial medium

Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics

Propagation along a helix of asymmetrical waves excited at the open waveguide end with H 11 wave in the circular cross section is investigated. A system of helices forming a square array is considered. The effective dielectric constant of the array representing an artificial medium is determined. The calculated results are checked experimentally.
