In this article, we study spiral particles with optimized design parameters, which can make possible the realization of media with equal dielectric, magnetic, and chiral susceptibilities. Two different spiral structures are investigated: the canonical spiral (which consists of a split loop with two straight-wire sections, orthogonal to the loop plane and connected to the edges of the gap) and the true helix (which is obtained by bending a wire with a constant pitch angle). The transmission and reflection coefficients of arrays of spiral particles are obtained under plane wave excitation by numerical simulation. The properties of slabs formed by periodic chiral and racemic arrays of spirals are investigated. Good agreement is found between the presented results and the previously reported theoretical and experimental studies.
