Abstract

Examples are given where, by changing the geometries of the sub-wavelength feature, while keeping the materials the same, a subwavelength optical element (SOE) will be changed from a waveplate to an antireflection surface, to a polarizer, to a beam splitter, to a filter, and to a lens. It is also shown that each of these functions has been achieved with a SOE layer of less than one micron thick.
