Abstract

Lorentz electron theory is a powerful approach for description of macroscopic parameters of a medium based on microscopic characteristics of the individual electron. For a planar array of chiral metallic split rings, we determine the averaged electron’s characteristics in a sprit ring and apply them to derive the permittivity tensor of the homogenized medium. The effective material parameters obtained describe anisotropic dichroic material, where electromagnetic waves are governed by enantiomeric and directional asymmetry – the signature property of planar chiral metamaterials.
