Abstract

We respond to a Comment on our Letter [Opt. Lett. 37, 4946 (2012)], in which we reported on the spin-to-orbital optical angular momentum conversion of a circular nanoslit in a thin metal layer. We claimed, in an unfortunately worded sentence, that the conversion efficiency was independent of the slit’s dichroism, which the Comment pointed out was incorrect. We acknowledge this and reiterate our original intention that as long as the dichroism is not too large, then it has little effect on the conversion efficiency in our system.
