We show that the linear polarization state of electromagnetic waves can be efficiently rotated to its orthogonal direction by an alternative design of anisotropic plasmonic meta-surfaces. Numerical results demonstrate that the reflection coefficient converting to cross-polarization after reflection is larger than 71% within an octave frequency band from to . The designed system is much thinner than conventional geometric-optics devices, and takes favorable advantage of little energy loss.
