Abstract: We introduce a new device based on sub-wavelength resonant grating technology. Using a single lithography step we built a reflective binary grating that mimics the functionality of a blazed diffraction grating in a flat geometry. We have also demonstrated that efficient sub-wavelength resonant devices for visible wavelengths can be built using silicon.
