A multilayered structure incorporating a metal-dielectric subwavelength grating, with the characteristic of polarization separation for visible light and the capability of creating reflection resonance and distinctive polarization-dependent color effects, is proposed. Its reflection resonance and color for TE and TM polarizations are discussed, as well as the influence of its structural parameters on them. Moreover, a reflection filter with characteristics of red for TE-polarized light, green for TM-polarized light, and yellow for daylight is designed and fabricated by replacing its grating region with a sinusoidal grating, and its related characteristics also are verified. The structure and its properties can achieve practical applications in various fields, such as color security, image reproduction, color filtering, and polarization-based information hiding.
