Layered chiral metallic meta-materials

Zheludev, N. I., Papakostas, A., Potts, A., Coles, H. J. and Bagnall, D. M., (2002) Layered chiral metallic meta-materials Lakhtakia, A., Dewar, G. and McCall, M. W. (eds.) At Conference on Complex Mediums III - Beyond Linear Isotropic Dielectrics, United States. 08 - 10 Jul 2002. , pp. 112-117.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Using electron beam lithographic techniques we have manufactured left and right-handed forms of an artificial medium consisting of high densities of microscopic planar chiral metallic objects distributed regularly in a plane. In this artificial medium we have for the first time observed optical manifestations of planar chirality in the form of handedness-sensitive rotation of the polarization state and elliptization of visible light diffracted from the structure. Applications of such media in functional materials are discussed.
