The temporal reflection response of an N-layer composite structure involving bianisotropic behavior is examined for the first time in the literature. Toward this goal, the wave matrix (WM) method, which is fundamental, relatively easier to apply, and compact and iterative suitable for analysis of multilayer structures, is first extended to the analysis of an interface separating two different media involving bianisotropy. Next, the reflection response of the whole structure is derived in terms of series form to better analyze its temporal behavior. Then, frequency-domain and time-domain responses of the whole structure are expressed using a special reflection coefficient (the reduced reflection coefficient) by way of the concept of subregions. A numerical analysis is performed to demonstrate the applicability of our formalism for two different polarization types (perpendicular and parallel).
