Abstract

The gain properties of an uncoated and a chiral coated slotted sphere embedded in a chiral background have been investigated using numerical simulations. In this paper, it is found that a chiral background medium enhances the gain of an uncoated slotted sphere in the forward direction as compared to the free space background. It is shown that the forward direction gain of a chiral coated slotted sphere embedded in a chiral background increases with the increase in the background chirality. It is further determined that the maximum gain moves away from the polar direction toward the forward direction as the chirality of the coating increases for a fixed background chirality. Also, this maximum gain gradually decreases as the chirality of the coating increases. An interesting feature of an angular window is introduced for a chiral coated slotted sphere embedded in a chiral background where the gain is nearly constant for a specific range of angles.
