We report on a planar metamaterial, the resonant transmission frequency of which does not depend on the polarization and angle of incidence of electromagnetic waves. The resonance results from the excitation of high-Q antisymmetric trapped current mode and shows sharp phase dispersion characteristic to Fano-type resonances of the electromagnetically induced transparency phenomenon.

    A three-layer chiral metamaterial is constructed by using two layers of four mutually rotated resonators and a subwavelength mesh sandwiched symmetrically between these layers. The resulting structure is an ultrathin, transparent, and polarization angle independent 90° polarization rotator....
