Reflective polarization conversion Fabry-Pérot resonator using omnidirectional mirror of periodic anisotropic stack Academic Article uri icon


  • A reflective Fabry–Pérot (FP) etalon is demonstrated exhibiting resonance peaks with a total 90°, polarization rotation. The resonator is based on the use of anisotropic alternating dielectric layers stack at wavelengths near the edge of the photonic band gap in where it acts as omnidirectional mirror. Tunability is shown to be possible by variation of the polar tilt angle of the dielectric ellipsoid.
