Chiral mirrors
Conventional mirrors convert right-handed circularly polarized waves (RCP) into left-handed circularly polarized waves (LCP) and vice versa, see Fig. 1(a-c). Here we demonstrate a novel type of chiral mirror that will reflect one circular polarization without changing its handedness, while absorbing waves of the opposite handedness, see Fig. 1(d-f). This functionality, which fundamentally relies on planar chirality, is enabling for circularly polarized cavities and lasers, detection of circularly polarized electromagnetic waves and optical activity measurements with resonantly enhanced sensitivity.

Abstract

Conventional mirrors convert right-handed circularly polarized waves (RCP) into left-handed circularly polarized waves (LCP) and vice versa, see Fig. 1(a-c). Here we demonstrate a novel type of chiral mirror that will reflect one circular polarization without changing its handedness, while absorbing waves of the opposite handedness, see Fig. 1(d-f). This functionality, which fundamentally relies on planar chirality, is enabling for circularly polarized cavities and lasers, detection of circularly polarized electromagnetic waves and optical activity measurements with resonantly enhanced sensitivity.
