Circular dichroism property of conjugated gammadion meta-atom integrated on silicon waveguide

The circular dichroism (CD) performance of conjugated gammadion structure on the end facet of silicon waveguide in the mid-infrared regime is investigated theoretically. By engineering the

Optical rotation and electromagnetically induced transparency in a chiral metamaterial with C4 symmetry.

This work designs and fabricates a double-layered chiral metamaterial with 4-fold rotational symmetry, which simultaneously exhibits optical rotation and electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) effects, and finds that magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole play important roles in Optical rotation and keeping the symmetry of the material equations.

Extrinsic optical activity in all-dielectric terahertz metamaterial.

An all-dielectric metamaterial with strong extrinsic circular dichroism and circular birefringence is proposed by periodically arranging symmetry-broken dielectric Mie resonators at terahertz frequencies by tuning the tilt angle of the incident wave.

Active perfect absorber based on planar anisotropic chiral metamaterials.

This in-depth theoretical analysis indicates that the circular conversion dichroism (CCD) from PACMs plays a crucial role to achieve the active chiroptical effect.

Material parameter retrieval procedure for general bi-isotropic metamaterials and its application to optical chiral negative-index metamaterial design.

A chiral optical negative-index metamaterial design of doubly periodic construction for the near-infrared spectrum is presented and an effective material parameter retrieval procedure is developed for general bi-isotropic meetamaterials.

Chirality selective metamaterial absorber with dual bands.

A sensitive chirality selective metamaterial absorber is constructed by using 'I-shaped' resonator with asymmetric twisted metallic wires that can intensely absorb LCP illumination with dual bands, but also circularly polarized (CP) conversion for RCP wave is achieved over a broad bandwidth.

Circular dichroism in planar nonchiral plasmonic metamaterials.

It is shown theoretically that a nonchiral, two-dimensional array of metallic spheres exhibits optical activity as manifested in calculations of circular dichroism, although the structure itself is intrinsicallynonchiral.

Absorption Circular Dichroism Induced by Contorted Electrical Oscillations in Rectangular Nanoholes

The chiroptical response of plasmonic chiral nanostructures can be tuned by combining different structures. In this paper, an L-shaped metal strip is introduced into a rectangular metal nanohole to
