Reflection and transmission for planar-layered anisotropic structures

A structure is considered that consists of any number of planar layers of different thicknesses and materials, each represented by permittivity and permeability tensors with complex elements. In addition, anisotropic jump-immittance sheets are located at the interfaces between layers. When a plane wave of arbitrary polarization is obliquely incident upon the structure, the reflection and, if appropriate, transmission coefficients are determined via a chain-matrix algorithm. The related computer code is tested on a variety of structures.
