Dispersion properties of the electromagnetic (em) waves propagating through a planar helix are investigated. A dispersion relation is obtained which includes influence of the outer metal shield on the em wave propagation. It is shown that the phase velocity of em waves reduces as the metal shield is brought closer to the planar helix.
