A simple calculation is made of the electromagnetic field radiated due to a charged particle traversing a plate of chiral material. The transition radiation from this chiral plate is round to differ from the usual dielectrie transition radiation. Discussion is presented placing in evidence the characteristics of the radiation and comments are made concerning the possible applicability of the transition radiation mechanism.
