Chiral gratings-a new class of polarization sensitive metamaterials

Zheludev, N. I., Coles, H. J., Potts, A., Papakostas, A., Bagnall, D. M. and Greef, R. (2002) Chiral gratings-a new class of polarization sensitive metamaterials At Quantum Electronics and Laser Science, United States. 18 - 23 May 2002.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


Summary form only given. Metallic bilayered structures with chirality and inductive coupling are predicted to show huge optical polarization rotatory power resembling that of liquid crystals. The semi-chiral planar gratings described here belong to a distinctively different class of 2D structures known as planar chiral structures.
