Abstract

We report that normal incidence transmission of circularly polarized waves through the lossy anisotropic planar chiral structure is asymmetric in the opposite direction. The new effect is fundamentally distinct from conventional gyrotropy of bulk chiral media and the Faraday effect, where the eigenstates are a pair of counterrotating elliptical states, while the eigenstates of the lossy anisotropic planar chiral structure are two corotating elliptical polarizations.
