Optical ChiralityΒΆ

The chiral response of optical scatterers may be computed in JCMsuite using the formalism of the optical chirality and the built-in Chiral Quantities. It has been shown that the time-harmonic optical chirality density obeys a local continuity equation [1]. This enables the analysis of chiral behaviour analogous to the study of electromagnetic energy.

This tutorial contains examples of optical chirality computations:
