Abstract
A novel Optical nanoantenna based on chiral photonic crystals is studied via numerical simulation under environment COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0. We have shown new model of optical nanoantenna. Where this miniaturized antenna has great potential application in biomedical and nanotechnologies. Numerical results are given and discussed to confirm these characteristics.
