Paper Abstract

The polarization-independent focusing is realized by use of a flat lens made of an octagonal photonic quasicrystal slab. The influence factors of this kind of focusing property are explored by changing the slab thickness, lateral slab size and source position. The results show that the polarization-independent focusing property is dependent on the slab thickness. And the lateral size of slab and specific source position can affect focus quality but they don't destroy the original polarization-independent focusing function. We believe that our investigation will be helpful in devising photonic devices capable of polarization-independent focusing based on quasiperiod photonic crystals.
