Abstract

Beam splitters are an indispensable part of optical measurements and applications. We propose a dynamic beam splitter incorporating all-dielectric metasurface in an elastic substrate under external mechanical stimulus of stretching. The optical behavior at 720 nm wavelength shows that it can be changed from a pure optical-diode-like behavior to a dynamic beam splitter. Although the structure is designed running at 720 nm, the design approach with appropriate materials can be used at any wavelength. Various cases, including wavelength and polarization dependencies, are thoroughly investigated to demonstrate the principles of operating conditions of two different regimes of the designed metasurface.
