A chiral metamaterial produces both distinguishable linear and non-linear resonant features when probed with left and right circularly polarized light. The material demonstrates a linear transmission contrast of 0.5 between left and right circular polarizations and a 20× contrast between second-harmonic responses from the two incident polarizations. Non-linear and linear response images probed with circularly polarized light show strongly defined contrast.
