    Electron transmission through chiral molecules induced by circularly polarized light can be very different for mirror image structures. This behavior is described in terms of current transfer: the transfer of both charge and momentum. We review recent theoretical developments on the theory of current transfer and discuss related experimental studies of electron transmission through chiral molecular structures adsorbed on surfaces.
