The plane-wave reflection and transmission characteristics of bimaterial interfaces between chiral and chiral- achiral interfaces have been extensively explored. We report on the curious characteristics of the interface formed by two chiral half-spaces, one of which is the mirror image of the other; this is referred to as problem 1. It is shown that these characteristics are related to the reflection of plane waves on the interface of a chiral half-space and a perfectly conducting one, which constitutes problem 2.
