We study the generic dipole interaction of a monochromatic free-space electromagnetic field with a bi-isotropic nanoparticle or a molecule. Contributions associated with the breaking of dual, P, and T symmetries are responsible for electric-magnetic asymmetry, chirality, and the nonreciprocal magnetoelectric effect, respectively. We calculate absorption rates, radiation forces, and radiation torques for the nanoparticle and introduce novel field characteristics quantifying the transfer of...[Show more]
