Abstract:
We report first demonstration of optical “magnetic wall”. Magnetic wall is a mirror, which in contrast to a conventional mirror, inflicts only small or zero change to the phase of a reflected wave. This intriguing and very useful property is achieved by nanostructuring of metal surface on subwavelength scale. Our experimental results are compared and well explained by numerical calculations. Among various application, which an optical magnetic wall could have, are magnificent resonant properties of harvesting light, e.g. for enhancement of photo-detector sensitivity and in polarization conversion for display applications.
