Abstract

We demonstrate a terahertz flat lens based on tri-layer metasurfaces allowing for broadband linear polarization conversion, where the phase can be tuned through a full 2π range by tailoring the geometry of the subwavelength resonators. The lens functionality is realized by arranging these resonators to create a parabolic spatial phase profile. The fabricated 124-μm-thick device is characterized by scanning the beam profile and cross section, showing diffraction-limited focusing and 68% overall efficiency at the operating frequency of 400 GHz. This device has potential for applications in terahertz imaging and communications, as well as beam control in general.
