Extrinsic electromagnetic chirality in metamaterials
Three- and two-dimensional chirality arising from the mutual orientation of non-chiral planar metamaterial structures and the incident electromagnetic wave (extrinsic chirality) lead to pronounced optical activity, circular dichroism and asymmetric transmission indistinguishable from those seen in media consisting of three- and two-dimensionally chiral molecules (intrinsic chirality).

Abstract

Three- and two-dimensional chirality arising from the mutual orientation of non-chiral planar metamaterial structures and the incident electromagnetic wave (extrinsic chirality) lead to pronounced optical activity, circular dichroism and asymmetric transmission indistinguishable from those seen in media consisting of three- and two-dimensionally chiral molecules (intrinsic chirality).
