It is demonstrated that a square nanoaperture can mediate polarized diffraction-limited radiation into nanoscale optical spots with the same polarization. A rectangular nanoaperture can convert linearly-polarized diffraction-limited radiation into circularly and elliptically-polarized nanoscale optical spots.
