Abstract
We theoretically demonstrate high efficiency broadband vector beams generation with polarization rotation metasurfaces composed of L-shaped silver antenna array, silica spacer, and silver ground plane. 0° to 90° arbitrary optical rotation with high degree of linear polarization (DoLP) over a broadband can be achieved readily by adjusting arm length of the L-shaped antenna. And through turning the L-shaped antennas upside down, the 0° to 90° optical rotation can be turned into 0° to -90°. Reflected phase can be shift by π after a 90° rotation of the L-shaped or Γ-shaped antennas, while optical rotation angle remains the same. Then six discrete units are designed to realize 0° to 360° polarization rotation with a step of 60°. With the combination of these units, we proposed metamaterial structures for highly efficient generation of radially polarized and azimuthally polarized vector beams.
