ABSTRACT: A method is brought forward for realizing polarization dependent devices by employing sub-wavelength asymmetrical hole array on a metallic film. Based on the fundamental mode approximation, the phase retardations of rectangular hole for two orthogonal polarization incident waves are analyzed and calculated. Using rectangular hole array, a bifocal-polarization lens for the infrared radiation with 10.6 microm wavelength is designed. Its focal lengths for x- and y- polarized incident wave are examined by the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method and the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld diffraction integrals and the obtained results agree well with the designed values.
