Description/Abstract

We demonstrate efficient conversion of a linearly-polarized Gaussian beam to a radially-polarised doughnut beam in the two-micron band using a continuously space-variant half-waveplate created by femtosecond writing of subwavelength gratings. The low scattering loss (<0.07) of this device indicates that it would be suitable for use with high power lasers
