Plane wave propagation in two kinds of Faraday chiral media, where
Faraday rotation is combined with optical activity, is studied to
examine methods of controlling chirality. The two types of media studied
are magnetically biased chiroplasmas and chiroferrites. For propagation
along the biasing magnetic field, four wavenumbers and two wave
impedances are found which are dependent on the strength of the biasing
field. Dispersion diagrams for the chiroplasma case are plotted.
Propagation at the plasma frequency of the chiroplasma is also
