Influence of chiral objects on spontaneous emission of atoms and molecules is under attention nowadays. The problem of interaction of chiral molecules with one [1] or two chiral [2] spheres was solved analytically recently by our group. The analytical results however are very difficult and needed to be calculated carefully. We modify the RF Module of COMSOL Multiphysics® in order to simulate numerically interaction of chiral molecules (superposition of electric and magnetic dipoles) with chiral structures. The model was used to confirm results of analytical solution. As a result, the COMSOL Multiphysics® RF Module was modified in order to work with chiral media. Numerical simulation of interaction of chiral spheres with chiral molecule was obtained and results are in good agreement with analytical ones.
