Large field-of-view and compact full-Stokes polarimetry based on quadratic phase metasurface

  • Polarization is one of the inherent characteristics of light, but the polarization information of electromagnetic waves is lost by traditional intensity and spectral detection technology. At the same time, not only the devices and technologies based on polarimetry have the problem of limited field of view, but also the measuring systems are complicated. In this paper, a compact large field-of-view polarimeter was designed based on dielectric metasurface, which realized the detection of the angle and polarization state of the incident light. The device was composed of 2×2 quadratic phase metasurfaces, each of which realized the symmetry transformation for a specific polarization, that is, the rotational symmetry of the incident angle was converted into the translational symmetry of focus in the focal plane. The theory of the symmetry transformation of the quadratic phase made it possible to characterize the angle of incidence by measuring the offset of the focus over a wide angle range (−40°—+40°). On this basis, the influence of oblique incidence on the measurement of Stokes parameters was elaborated, and the modified Stokes formula was obtained. The Stokes parameters of the incident light can be calculated by utilizing the intensities of the four focal points and the modified Stokes formula. The measured Stokes parameters agree well with the theoretical values, when the field-of-view is 0°, 20°, and 40°.
