Comparison of birefringent metamaterials and meanderline structure as quarter-wave plates at terahertz frequencies


Conference Paper

We compare a single layer metamaterial quarter-wave plate with a meanderline polarizer. They achieve 99.9% and 99.6% circular polarization at 639 GHz, respectively. These results highlight the large degree of birefringence exhibited by metamaterial structures. © 2009 Optical Society of America.
