  • Patent number: 11867937
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides an optical component, which may be a metasurface grating, including (a) a substrate; and (b) an array of subwavelength-spaced phase-shifting elements, which are tessellated on the substrate to produce, when illuminated with a polarized incident light, a diffracted light beam with a distinct polarization state for each of a finite number of diffraction orders, wherein the finite number is 2 or more.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 13, 2021
    Date of Patent: January 9, 2024
    Assignee: PRESIDENT AND FELLOWS OF HARVARD COLLEGE
    Inventors: Noah A. Rubin, Federico Capasso
  • Publication number: 20230288716
    Abstract: An optical component comprises a metasurface comprising nanoscale elements. The metasurface is configured to receive incident light and to generate optical outputs. The geometries and/or orientations of the nanoscale elements provide a first optical output upon receiving a polarized incident light with a first polarization, and provide a second optical output upon receiving a polarized incident light with a second polarization that is different from the first polarization.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20220206205
    Abstract: An optical component includes a substrate and a metasurface comprising one or more linearly birefringent elements. The linearly birefringent elements define a grating configured to implement parallel polarization analysis for a plurality of polarization orders for incident light of an arbitrary polarization.
