A general scheme for investigating the electromagnetic wave beam reflection by and transmission through a chiral slab is proposed. The electromagnetic wave beams within different regions are described by appropriate cylindrical vector wave function expansions, and their expansion coefficients are determined by using the boundary conditions and projection method. Under illumination by a fundamental Gaussian beam, a Hermite–Gaussian beam and a doughnut mode beam, numerical results of the normalized field intensity distributions are provided and discussed briefly.
