Abstract

Circular polarizers have potential applications in optical communication and liquid crystal display. In this paper, a multilayer twisted nanoring-rod nanostructure is designed. The finite element method is used to explore the surface plasmon of the structure under the excitation of left-handed circularly polarized light and right-handed circularly polarized light. The results show that the structure can be used as a polarizer in the tunable operating bandwidth of 400–1290 nm, and tunability is achieved by changing the filling medium near the structure instead of the geometric parameters of the nanostructures. We qualitatively reveal the physical mechanism of this phenomenon from the perspective of plasmon resonance coupling by plotting the charge distribution at several specific wavelengths.
