Abstract

We examined the properties of photonic crystals that consist of nonoverlapping chiral spheres in a dielectric medium. We considered the effect of the chiral property of the spheres on the frequency band structure of the electromagnetic field in the crystal and on the transmittance properties of a slab of the crystal, and we estimated the optical activity of the crystal.
