Efficient generation and tight focusing of radially polarized beam from linearly polarized beam with all-dielectric metasurface.

Abstract

We propose a single layer all-dielectric metasurface lens to simultaneously convert and focus an incident linear polarization into a radial beam with high efficiency and high numerical aperture (NA). It shows a better focusing property compared with the linearly polarized metasurface lens for high NA. A tight spot size (0.502λ) is achieved for the NA = 0.94. Additionally, the emergent polarization can in principle be switched flexibly between radially and azimuthally polarized beams by the adjustment of incident polarization direction. It is expected that our scheme may have potential value in microscopy, material processing, medicine, particles accelerating and trapping, and so on.
