Abstract

Linearly polarized quantum sources with high purity and well-defined polarization angles are the fundamental blocks in the photonic quantum technological evolution. However, due to the orientation of the dipole moment with the quantum emitters, the polarization state of the emitted photons is intrinsically limited. Therefore, it is impossible to generate arbitrary linear polarization states simultaneously. Here, we propose a new concept of versatilely generating linearly polarized emission based on a quantum metasurface platform that combines nano-diamonds containing color centers with metasurface-decorated waveguides. By tailoring the size and orientation of the slit meta-atom on the waveguide, linearly polarized emission with arbitrary polarization angles can be achieved with the degree of linear polarization larger than 0.999.
