An optical field around regular polygon metal nanostructures excited by circularly polarized light can exhibit rotationally displaced intensity distributions. Although this phenomenon has been recognized, its underlying mechanisms has not been sufficiently explained. Herein, finite-difference time-domain simulations and model analyses reveal that the rotationally displaced optical intensity distribution can be generated when each of the linear polarization components that constitute circular polarization excites a superposition of multiple modes. The proposed model reasonably explains the rotationally displaced patterns for a square nanoantenna and other regular-polygon nanoantennas.
