Abstract

An ultrathin reflection-type metamirror is proposed for multi-focusing with any desired focusing fashion including focal number and location. The metamirror is composed of reflection-type Pancharatnam–Berry (P-B) phase elements, which are able to provide full reflection phase of 2π, together with near-unity reflection efficiency by judiciously engineering the rotation angle of each latter element. A holographic algorithm is utilized to calculate the phase distribution at the interface of the metamirror to achieve the desired multi-focus spots. Experimental demonstrations performed in microwave region show good imaging quality with high reflection efficiency and imaging efficiency. The proposed metamirror provides a high-performance solution for low-cost and lightweight beam-shaping and beam-focusing devices.
