Abstract

Self-imaging of a periodic space-variant polarized field is demonstrated. The field is created by use of space-variant subwavelength dielectric gratings. Our observations include self-imaging of the fields at the Talbot planes as well as the translation of incident polarization variation into intensity modulation at certain planes. We demonstrate the formation of a one-dimensional nondiffracting beam with uniform intensity and a nontrivial polarization structure.
