Abstract

Analogous to optical circular dichroism, it is possible to have electron circular dichroism, the preferential transmission of longitudinally polarized electrons through a chiral medium. Using stereoisomers of camphor vapor as a scattering target, we looked for this effect at incident electron energies of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 10 eV. Within our detection limit (~0.02%) we have not observed a spin-dependent asymmetric transmission.
