Title:
OPTICAL ELEMENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/181895
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
[Problem] In a conventional flat plate lens, condensing functionality is weak, and size reduction (decreasing the focal distance and reducing the size of the lens) is significantly limited. [Solution] The present invention provides an optical element for condensing/diverging/refracting linearly polarized light using a plurality of wavelength plate regions of a photonic crystal. Using the features whereby a thin wavelength plate has an extremely large effective refractive index difference, and a phase difference can be continuously varied on a single substrate, it is possible to provide an optical element for condensing/diverging/refracting linearly polarized light. Because a lens can be formed by numerous thin wavelength plates in the present invention, the thickness of the lens as a whole can be made extremely small.
