We report the first experiential observation and theoretical analysis of the new phenomenon of planar chiral circular conversion dichroism, which in some aspects resembles the Faraday effect in magnetized media, but does not require the presence of a magnetic field for its observation. It results from the interaction of an electromagnetic wave with an anisotropic chiral planar structure patterned on the sub-wavelength scale, and manifests itself in asymmetric transmission of circularly polarized waves in the opposite directions through the structure and elliptically polarized eigenstates. The new effect is radically different from conventional gyrotropy of three-dimensional chiral media. The effect of planar chiral circular conversion dichroism has been observed both in the microwave and optical parts of the spectrum.
