Dynamically switchable half-/quarter-wave plates have recently been the focus in the terahertz regime. Conventional design strategies lead to multilayer metamaterials or narrowband metasurfaces. Here we propose a novel design strategy and a VO2-metal hybrid metasurface for achieving broadband dynamically switchable half-/quarter-wave plate (HWP/QWP) based on the transition from the overdamped to the underdamped resonance. Simulation results show that, by varying the VO2 conductivity by three…
