Based on the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory framework, the reflection and transmission of an incident Gaussian beam by a chiral slab were investigated, by expanding the incident Gaussian beam, reflected beam, internal beam as well as transmitted beam in terms of cylindrical vector wave functions. The unknown expansion coefficients were determined by virtue of the boundary conditions. For a localized beam model, numerical results of the normalized field intensity distributions are presented, and the propagation characteristics are discussed concisely in this paper.
