The possibility of the backward waves and negative refractive indices of the gyrotropic chiralmaterials is studied, and the impedances of the eigenmodes arederived. Since the gyrotropic parameters in the permittivity and permeabilitytensors favour the realization of the negative refractive index in the gyrotropicchiral material, the negatively refracting medium can be achieved even far offthe resonances of the permittivity and permeability. A potential effect of the field quantization in a compact subwavelength cavity resonator containing thegyrotropic chiral material is suggested.
