This paper presents an analysis of several planar bianisotropic waveguides including grounded slabs and strip lines. The bianisotropic properties of the materials are prescribed in a special but practical form so that the propagating waves are either transverse electric or transverse magnetic modes. Certain unique characteristics of the waves are discussed including mode elimination, unidirectional propagation, and the existence of complex modes. Both analytical and numerical results of guided wave properties are discussed.
