Here, we propose a new mirror architecture which is solely based upon a monolithic dielectric micro-structured surface. Hence, the mirror device, which consists of a possibly mono-crystalline bulk material, can in principle simultaneously provide perfect reflectivity and lowest mechanical loss. By specifically structuring the monolithic surface, resulting in T-shaped ridges of a subwavelength grating, a resonant behavior of light coupling can be realized, leading to theoretically 100% reflectivity.
