Abstract

Spiral phase elements with topological charges based on space-variant Pancharatnam–Berry phase optical elements are presented. Such elements can be achieved by use of continuous computer-generated space-variant subwavelength dielectric gratings. We present a theoretical analysis and experimentally demonstrate spiral geometrical phases for infrared radiation at a wavelength of 10.6µm .
