Abstract:

1. Negative Reflection
In chiral medium, two circular polarized eigenmodes are splitted. Without large spatial dispersion, the chirality can be strong enough to make one of the eigenmode backward, i.e. antiparallel wave vector and Poynting vector. In this case, the wave will be reflected negatively on the interface. Hence the partial imaging can be achieved by a plane mirror.

2. Superluminal effects
Both fast light and tunneling can approach superluminality without violation on causality. Fast light occurs around the region where the index changes rapidly with frequency. Quantum tunneling means the probability of a particle transmitting through a finite barrier where the potential is higher than its kinetic energy. Photonic tunneling is acoupling process by evanescent waves. It is found that such tunnelingusesless time thanpropagating through the same distancein vacuum without observable reshaping, andwill saturate quickly with the growth of the barrierwidth. The time delayis not a propagating time, but the lifetime of the evanescent energy storage inside the barrier.
