Nuclear chirality is a novel manifestation of spontaneous symmetry breaking resulting from an orthogonal coupling of angular momentum vectors. In triaxial nuclei with an odd number of protons and neutrons three perpendicular angular momenta provided by the valence particles and collective rotation can form two systems of opposite handedness. The electromagnetic properties of the resulting doublet bands offer the opportunity to probe formation of chiral geometry according to the model predictions. The status of current theoretical and experimental investigation of electromagnetic properties of the doublet bands is discussed.
