Abstract

The concept of sculptured thin films (STFs) is exploited to propose and theoretically examine a polarization-discriminatory handedness inverter of circularly polarized light. Suggestions for improved performance of the proposed two-layer, dielectric device as well as several production-related issues are discussed. © 1999 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.
