Abstract

Considered here are the effective medium properties of a chiral composite made of a dilute concentration of small non-interacting chiral spheres, randomly suspended in a chiral host medium. Volume integral equations to determine the scattering characteristics of an inhomogeneous chiral scatter are given. These equations are utilized to derive the electromagnetic polarizabilities of a small, homogeneous, chiral sphere embedded in a homogeneous chiral host medium. Finally, from the polarizabilities, the effective properties of the chiral-chiral composite are obtained.
