Abstract-q-plate for the Generation of Terahertz Cylindrical Vector Beams Fabricated by 3D Printing
We present the design, fabrication, and characterization of a q-plate with continuous birefringence variation at terahertz frequencies. This q-plate was fabricated by three-dimensional printing and is a simple solution for the generation of cylindrical vector beams. This device can find a number of applications in future terahertz technologies such as telecommunications.
