Paper Abstract

The development of metasurface, capable of controlling wave-fronts through interfacial phase discontinuity, offers a fascinating methodology for designing two dimensional miniaturized optical devices. Owing to an additional advantage of the enhanced useful transmission via Bainet-inverted matasurface, we exploit them to demonstrate an intriguing concept of merging the phase-profiles of two distinct optical devices, a lens and a spiral phase plate, to realize an ultrathin nanostructured optical vortex lens. The proposed device can has multiple focal planes along the longitudinal direction; whereas the number of focal plans, corresponding topological charges and focal lengths can readily be tailored to meet any desired requirements. Meanwhile, the dual-polarity feature of the optical vertex metalens exhibits spin controlled real and virtual focal plans, while dispersionless aptitude of nanobars enables its working over the broadband. The concept unveils a novel way of employing metasurface, to engraft the phase profiles of multiple bulk devices, to achieve unique functionalities for promising applications in integrated photonics.
