Title: Broadband integrated polarization rotator using three-layer metallic grating structures

Abstract

In this work, we demonstrate broadband integrated polarization rotator (IPR) with a series of three-layer rotating metallic grating structures. This transmissive optical IPR can conveniently rotate the polarization of linearly polarized light to any desired directions at different spatial locations with high conversion efficiency, which is nearly constant for different rotation angles. The linear polarization rotation originates from multi-wave interference in the three-layer grating structure. As a result, we anticipate that this type of IPR will find wide applications in analytical chemistry, biology, communication technology, imaging, etc.
