In the paper a phenomenological approach is proposed to polarized electromagnetic wave propagation in magnetodielectric media, composed of piezoelectric and magnetostrictive anisotropic monolayers. The composite materials consisting of a system of such bimorph films have recently attracted much interest, because they can exhibit a much stronger magnetoelectric effect in a wide temperature range than the single phase multiferroic materials. In the paper dispersion equations given in a common form: for both TE and TM modes are derived for long wave approximation. The equations can be of use in evaluation of directional dependence for particular polarizations, which is of particular interest in designing substrate for miniaturized polarimetric antenna, especially useful for modern synthetic aperture radar systems.
