Abstract

Simulations of Maxwell's equations for electromagnetic waves interacting with planar chiral structures are shown to depend on the polarization state of the exciting light field. These results illustrate generic features of light interaction with planar chiral structures and imply broken enantiomeric symmetry for excitation with circularly polarized light.
