Abstract

This Letter introduces and discusses a difference in the behavior of a cylindrical diffractive lens encoded with subwavelength structures illuminated with monochromatic coherent light in the cases of TE and TM polarization. The effective medium theory is used to model with new binary phase function the diffractive lens. A new algorithm combines the finite-difference time domain for the propagation in the near field and the radiation spectrum method for the propagation in the far field. We observe the existence in the TM polarization of a second spot at half the distance of the focal length not predictable by scalar theory.
