Title: Structured light beams for terahertz communications

Abstract: Terahertz radiation, which is sandwiched between the infrared and microwave in the electromagnetic spectrum, has been considered as a candidate for future wireless communications. In order to increase communication capacity, orbital angular momentum multiplexing technology should be adopted. A single metasurface which can be used for terahertz orbital angular momentum multiplexing and demultiplexing is designed. The designed structure can generate four phase vortex beams that have different topological charges under illumination by a Gaussian beam with different incident angles, which means that OAM multiplexing with four channels is realized. When an individual vortex beam is used as the incident light, only one channel is identified and extracted as a focal spot; that is, demultiplexing of the OAM signal is achieved. The structure has subwavelength-level thickness, which enriches the number of potential approaches available for the miniaturization and integration of THz communication systems. An abruptly autofocusing ring-Airy beam is demonstrated with a meta-hologram. The designed meta-hologram is composed of gold C-shaped slot antennas, which can realize both phase and amplitude modulation of the incident THz wave. An abrupt focus following a parabolic trajectory is subsequently observed. The Airy beams can provide a curved channel for wireless communications. A reflective metalens that can gather light from many directions and focus it at a fixed place is also presented. This reflective metalens is capable of consistently and efficiently reflecting incident light from a wide angle of incidence and focusing it into one spot. Experiments in a 220 GHz environment were used to confirm the reflective metalens’s functionality. It is expected these metasurface can provide more functional devices for 6G communication.
