Abstract
We will show how to extract information from the Mie coefficients to properly design dual systems combined with chiral elements for having optically active structures. Such optically active elements will scatter the light omnidirectionally, where the amount of rotation of light is fixed in any given direction independently of the incident polarization. The key elements are the preservation of helicity by equaling the electric and magnetic responses from the material, and by the proper manipulation of the angular momentum.
