Broadband polarization-converting mirror for the visible region of the spectrum

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A mirror structure that enables the polarization of linearly polarized light to be rotated by 90° over the entire visible region of the spectrum is presented. Theoretical modeling is used to show that this phenomenon occurs for light that is normally incident upon a metal grating consisting of a series of high and narrow ridges that are oriented at 45° to the polarization angle. This broad polarization-conversion band is shown to arise from mode mixing of surface plasmon polariton-mediated polarization-conversion bands and interference-mediated polarization-conversion bands.
