Photon nanosieves, as amplitude-type metasurfaces, have been demonstrated usually in a transmission mode for optical super-focusing, display and holography, but the sieves with subwavelength size constrain optical transmission, thus leading to low efficiency. Here, we report reflective photon nanosieves that consist of metallic meta-mirrors sitting on a transparent quartz substrate. Upon illumination, these meta-mirrors offer the reflectance of ~50%, which is 2~45 times higher than the transmission of visible light through diameter-identical nanoholes. Benefiting from this configuration, a meta-mirror-based reflective hologram has been demonstrated with good consistence between theoretical and experimental results over the broadband spectrum from 500 nm to 650 nm, meanwhile exhibiting the total efficiency of ~7%. Additionally, if an additional high-reflectance layer is employed below these meta-mirrors, the efficiency can be enhanced further for optical anti-counterfeiting. © 2021 Optical Society of America
