Scattering in layers composed of periodic and non-periodic arrangements of small metal helices is discussed. Metal helices exhibit a pronounced resonance and are thus very effective scatterers. Scattering is expressed in terms of multipole moments. The investigations show that only few multipole contributions are necessary to model the interaction correctly.
