Abstract: In this work we investigated a new class of subwavelength focusing device, termed the holographic metallic screen. We first proposed a generalized procedure which takes a holographic record of a subwavelength electromagnetic field distribution. Subsequently we synthesized this record using two types of holographic metallic screen – the slot antenna hologram (SAH) and the resonant slot antenna hologram (RSAH). We designed both holograms and evaluated their performances through full-wave simulations, and experimentally demonstrated subwavelength focusing for the RSAH. Simulations and experiments illustrated various attractive properties of the subwavelength focusing RSAH, which included (a) a tighter focal width than a single subwavelength aperture; (b) a focal field amplitude surpassing the incident field amplitude; and (c) a simple design scalable to a wide range of frequencies from microwave to optical. These properties should serve to motivate further development on the holographic metallic screen towards potential applications such as sensing, imaging and lithography.
