Depolarization of quasi-monochromatic light by thin resonant gratings

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Using rigorous diffraction theory, we show that it is possible to depolarize quasi-monochromatic light using a fully deterministic, thin optical element. The principle is based on polarization-sensitive resonant gratings in total-internal-reflection configuration, and careful numerical design by the Fourier modal method. We present numerical examples for 0.1nm and 10nm bandwidths.
