Abstract:
The development of high-efficiency compact non-mechanical beam tuning devices has attracted a lot of attention for light detection and ranging, augmented reality display, and chip-to-chip communication. Owing to the fast wavefront manipulation in an ultra-thin dimension, metasurfaces have been regarded as potential substitutes for traditional tunable optical components toward further miniaturization and low power consumption. However, most beam tuning metasurfaces currently are polarization-sensitive and designed to work in reflection mode, which limit their applications in integrated optical systems for full-range steering. In this paper, a transmission mode polarization-insensitive beam switching metasurface based on nonvolatile phase change material Ge2Sb2Te5 is proposed and experimentally demonstrated at the telecommunication wavelength. The high transmission efficiency with a large switching angle of up to 75° is achievable for potentially full-range beam steering applications. As a proof of concept, the transmitted beam with a switching angle of 15° and directivity of 82.4% is demonstrated. In addition, by controlling the phase transition in the intermediate states, the metasurface can be used as a tunable beam splitter to control the ratio of the beam power between two predesigned transmission angles. The demonstrated phase change metasurfaces pave the way for achieving high-efficiency dynamic beam steering for various important applications.
