We propose a method to retrieve the effective constitutive parameters of a slab of bianisotropic metamaterial from reflection and transmission coefficients (or scattering parameters). In our retrieval method, only the scattering parameters in one propagation direction are used. Analytical inversion equations are derived in order to retrieve the effective parameters of the permittivity, permeability, and magnetoelectric coupling coefficient of the bianisotropic metamaterial. To demonstrate the validity of the method, we used it to retrieve the parameters of four different metamaterials, among which two were normal media without bianisotropy and the other two were bianisotropic media. In using our retrieval method, including bianisotropy, the intrinsic differences between a normal medium and a bianisotropic medium were illustrated clearly. Our simulation and retrieval results also corroborate the conclusions of the previously published literature.
