Abstract: A reflection grating demonstrating extraordinarily broad-band polarization conversion in a nondiffractive regime has been studied at microwave frequencies. This single-element structure has been fabricated by electrolessly plating a metallic layer onto a stereo-lithographically produced resin profile. Angle-dependent microwave reflectivity data collected from the grating indicates polarization conversion of greater than 80% over a spectral bandwidth equivalent to the entire visible regime (factor of 2 in frequency). This supports an earlier publication in which it was predicted that a broad-band polarization converter could be created from a suitably profiled diffraction grating.
