Reflection of planewaves at the planar interface of two biisotropic media has been examined in order to obtain the Brewster wavenumber. This examination shows that the Brewster wavenumber is, at least, not necessarily affected by the reciprocity or the non-reciprocity of the media on either side of the planarinterface.
