Paper Abstract

Through the application of a bias voltage, metamaterials can dynamically change their response, opening up new technological possibilities. Combining design elements from three common metamaterial patterns, we have created a metamaterial polarizing filter that will transmit all polarization orientations equally when in the static mode. When a bias voltage is applied, the filter will minimize the transmission of x-polarized light in the wavelength band of interest. Progress has been made on creating a sufficiently conductive metamaterial to enable the dynamic mode, as well as on incorporating several filters into a monolithic stack. Fabrication methods and transmission results for the required substrates will be discussed.
