Matrix Fourier optics and polarization imaging

Matrix Fourier optics and polarization imaging

Metasurfaces, nanophotonic arrays of phase shifting elements with subwavelength spacing, may have elements designed with form birefringence. This makes metasurfaces a particularly interesting platform for …

Broadband achromatic metalens focuses light regardless of polarization

Broadband achromatic metalens focuses light regardless of polarization

In this work, we show that anisotropic nanofins can be used as a building block to realize achromatic as well as polarization-insensitive metalenses. These metalenses …
