A gold nanowired grid polarizer is studied in the mid-IR range by means of spectroscopic Mueller matrix ellipsometry. This material is also an example of a so-called 2-dimensional hyperbolic metamaterial/metasurface, and produced by low-cost large area scalable manufacturing techniques. We present the IR spectroscopic Mueller matrix optical response of such sample for a full azimuthal rotation. It is observed strong in-plane anisotropy due to the gold wire grid. The main objective is to show a characterization methodology to reveal the complete polarimetric response over a large spectral range, providing information about the effective optical properties of the sample. Three different optical models are proposed that catch the main features of experimental data. The first one is based on the Rigorous Coupled-Wave Analysis (RCWA) assuming the profile of the …
