A device to be obtained by depositing a columnar thin-film on a transparent substrate decorated periodically by an array of rectangular grooves is proposed as a narrowband, linear-polarization rejection filter. The rigorous coupled-wave approach is harnessed to calculate the reflectances and transmittances. High-quality filters of chosen materials and with less than 2 nm bandwidths can be designed with a vapor flux angle for deposition of the columnar thin-film as the controlling parameter.
