# Core-Shell Particles as Building Blocks for Systems with High Duality Symmetry

@article{Rahimzadegan2017CoreShellPA, title={Core-Shell Particles as Building Blocks for Systems with High Duality Symmetry}, author={Aso Rahimzadegan and Carsten Rockstuhl and Ivan Fernandez‐Corbaton}, journal={Physical Review Applied}, year={2017} }

Material electromagnetic duality symmetry requires a system to have equal electric and magnetic responses. Electromagnetic duality enables technologically important effects like artificial optical activity and zero back-scattering, is a requirement for metamaterials in transformation optics, Huygens wave-front control, and maximal electromagnetic chirality, and appears in topological photonic systems. Intrinsically dual materials that meet the duality conditions at the level of the constitutive…
