    Metamaterials with anisotropic electromagnetic properties have the capability to manipulate the polarization states of electromagnetic waves. We describe a method to design a broadband, low-loss wave retarder with graded constitutive parameter distributions based on non-resonant metamaterial elements. A structured metamaterial half-wave retarder that converts one linear polarization to its cross polarization is designed and its performance is characterized experimentally. © 2009 Optical Society of America.
