Author Affiliations +
We design broadband polarization mirrors for optical communications. The mirrors consist of multilayer subwavelength gratings that do not require lateral alignment with respect to one another. Flexible bandwidth control and wide angular response of reflectivity are demonstrated in several configurations with 2, 3, and 4 layers of gratings. Perspective applications to the polarization control of active devices in the telecommunication windows, including vertical cavity surface emitting lasers are presented.
