Abstract

Polarization state generation plays an important role in optics and are applied in many fields. Multispectral polarization manipulation can increase information capacity. To meet the requirement of miniaturization and integration, it is desirable to generate multispectral polarization states with a compact optical device. a metasurface device is proposed and experimentally demonstrated, which can simultaneously realize wavelength separation and polarization generation. A geometric metasurface is used to realize the phase and wavelength multiplexing. Six polarization states with different wavelengths are generated. Customized polarization states with predesigned wavelength information can add extra degrees of freedom for carrying information, opening a new window for portable polarization optics where low-cost and miniaturized systems are in high demand.
