Abstract

A metal slit array arranged along a semicircular surface achieving subwavelength optical beam focusing along the lateral direction is proposed. Taking into consideration surface plasmon polaritons that pass through a metal slit array, we design the array with a curvature. By use of a genetic algorithm, the size of the metal slit and the corresponding curvature are to be determined. Based on our metal slit array configuration, the full width at half-maximum can be achieved on a subwavelength scale.
