    Abstract

    A study was conducted to probe the nonlinear, near-field interaction of engineered chiral structures. The study specifically focused on selective enhancement of a chiral quantum dot emitters within close proximity of our bilayered, chiral metamaterial structure, which was tuned resonance and strong CD. Exposing the chiral center of the 3D structure allowed for probing and modification of the nonlinear signal at the heart of the metamaterial's structural chirality. The enhancement recognized in the rough films could be attributed to the lightning rod effect, where rough surfaces led to stronger confinement and larger mode volumes.
