Abstract

A method to detect the full Stokes parameters utilizing a double-ring and Archimedes-curves distributed nanoslits plasmonic lenses is proposed. We demonstrate theoretically and numerically that both of these two plasmonic lenses can focus surface plasmon polaritons to centrally symmetric fields with subwavelength-sized focal spots under linear, elliptical, and circular polarization incidence. The intensity at the focal spots is modulated by the polarization state of incident light. Utilizing this intensity polarization sensitivity, the full Stokes parameters of incident light are detected by recoding only four intensities at the focal spots of these two plasmonic lenses.
