- Super Chiral light has a higher angular momentum than normal light. What does that really mean?
Main Question or Discussion Point
In this article it discusses the generation of something called super chiral light and claims with metamaterials they can make it have very high angular momentum like l=100. What does that really mean? How does that relate in magnitude to the normally computed linear momentum of a photon p=h/λ on some equivalent basis such as per unit energy? Thanks.
