Abstract

In this paper, inhomogeneous planar layers are optimally designed as reflection wave polarizers in a desired incidence angles range. First, the electric permittivity function of the structure is expanded in a truncated Fourier series. Then, the optimum values of the coefficients of the series are obtained through an optimization approach. The validation and the performance of the proposed structure are verified using some examples.
