Paper Abstract

Using electron beam lithographic techniques we have manufactured left and right-handed forms of an artificial medium consisting of high densities of microscopic planar chiral metallic objects distributed regularly in a plane. In this artificial medium we have for the first time observed optical manifestations of planar chirality in the form of handedness-sensitive rotation of the polarization state and elliptization of visible light diffracted from the structure. Applications of such media in functional materials are discussed.
