This work presents a three-layered thin film system to generate broadband polarization conversion. The enhanced polarization conversion in the prism coupling system is analyzed as a constructive interference effect of polarization coupled states. According to our analysis, an antireflection film that is used to reduce the multireflection in the anisotropic film and a compensation film that is used to reduce dispersion of propagation phase difference are applied on both sides of an anisotropic thin film to cause broadband polarization conversion.
