With reference to the MT3 sample, Supplementary Movie 1 shows the evolution of the measured field map, by assuming a y-polarized incidence and gradually changing (with 5° step) the transmitted linear polarization state by 90°. Going from the co-polarized to the cross-polarized state, and in accord with the theoretical prediction, we observe the gradual disappearing of the ordinary beam accompanied by the appearance of the anomalous beam.
Supplementary Figure S7 shows the results of the far-field characterization (without polarization control) pertaining to the MT2 and MT4 samples. Overall, results are qualitatively similar to those observed in connection with the MT1 and MT3 prototypes (cf. Figure 4). In this case, transmission angles (for MT2) and (for MT4) are measured, once again in good agreement with the theoretical predictions (see Table 1). Measurements with polarization control yield results qualitatively similar to those in Figure 5 and Supplementary Movie 1 pertaining to the MT3 sample.
