What is a Geometric Phase Lens?
A Geometric Phase Lens (GPL) is an LCP-based thin-film that functions like a volume lens or lens array, but with special features (polarization directed flat lens).
How It Works
The desired lens phase profile is encoded directly into the local orientation of the optical axis. Circularly polarized light takes on this phase profile directly through the geometric phase (also called the Pancharatnam-Berry phase) effect.
