Abstract

The optical properties of a planar metamaterial with gammadion-shaped chiral symmetry breaking holes array have been investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The results indicate that the introduction of the chiral symmetry breaking causes the split of the transmission peak and exerts large influence on the optical rotation and circular dichroism. Our metamaterials might have potential applications in future design of plasmonic devices.
