Abstract

In work described by V. K. Valev and co-workers on page 4074, circularly polarized light is incident on a nanostructured chiral meta-surface. In the surface regions where the handedness of light matches that of the nanostructured unit cells, superchiral light is formed and strong optical second harmonic generation can be observed.
