Abstract

We present computational analysis of optical chiral metamaterials that consist of helical metallic elements. At optical frequencies, metals are modeled as penetrable objects with plasmonic properties. A rigorous implementation based on boundary element methods and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used for efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures. Numerical results demonstrate interesting polarization-rotating characteristics of such arrays with helical elements, as well as their complex responses depending on geometric parameters.
