Abstract

Chirality is a fundamental asymmetry property that appears abundantly in nature[1]. A system is chiral if and only if it is distinct from its mirror image (its opposite handedness chiral-partner), e.g. circularly polarized light or chiral molecules. Such systems are unique in that their properties are completely independent of their handedness up until the moment they interact with another chiral object. For instance, partner chiral molecules have identical cross-sections for absorption of linearly-polarized light, but not for absorption of circularly polarized light, leading to circular dichroism (CD)[1].
