Paper Abstract

It is possible to design a transmission linear partial polarizer (LPP) in the negative thin-film system (N1<√(0N2)) as a function of the film thickness and its refractive index, where N0, N1, and N2 are the refractive indices of the ambient, film, and substrate, respectively. This LPP can be designed to operate at more than one angle of incidence as well as over a range of angles, allowing it to be tunable. The design procedure is discussed, the relevant design equations are presented, and an example of an LPP design is given and its performance is analyzed.
