Abstract
The design, fabrication and characterization of space-variant Pancharatnam-Berry phase optical elements is presented for the terahertz regime (THz). These PBOEs are made out of polystyrene and were fabricated by commercially available three-dimensional printers, providing a simple and inexpensive solution for the generation of THz vector beams. The polarization structure was characterized by using a THz time-domain imaging system. These devices can find applications in future THz technologies and provide new tools for the study of polarization morphologies
