Abstract
This paper presents an engineered metasurface which can serve functionalities such as anomalous bending, focusing, and beam shaping over the circularly polarized (CP) incident beam. The building block is a bilayer double split-loop resonators (DSLRs) where it can fully transmit the impinging light and control phase only by rotation of unit-cell and not by changing the structural parameters which can greatly facilitate the fabrication process. The mechanism behind this fascinating feature can be described as the conversion of an impinging CP incident beam into the opposite handedness and obtaining a geometrical phase shift equal to twice the rotating angle of DSLRs. It is illustrated that full transmission with 2π phase shift can be achieved with the proposed metasurface. Unique designs with helicity dependency to realize anomalous bending, bifunctional convergence/divergence, and flat-top beam creation with applying lossless beam shaping approach are presented.
