The researchers stated that the multilevel metamaterial linear polarizer rotates light with polarization perpendicular to its principal axis by 90deg.
In order to measure the circular polarization, two polarizers are jointed back to back with a commercial circular waveguide plated by gold, one adapter and one load are connected with one polarizer, as illustrated in Fig.
By using the hybrid matrix and extracting the reflection and transmission matrices and using the conditions for zero reflection, a suitable arrangement of materials for designing bilayer anisotropic lowpass filters and polarizers was found.
The key idea of this paper is that the quadrature hybrid matrix is equivalent to the waveguide polarizer matrix rotated by 45[degrees].
