Let a be a finite field of cardinality a and a be positive integers such that n is odd. In this paper, we give an explicit representation for every self-dual cyclic code over the finite chain ring a of length 2sn and provide a calculation method to obtain all distinct codes. Moreover, we obtain a clear formula to count the number of all these self-dual cyclic codes. As an application, self-dual and 2-quasi-cyclic codes over a of length 2s+1can be obtained from self-dual cyclic code over a of length 2sn and by a Gray map preserving orthogonality and distances from a onto a.
