Metasurfaces consisting of ultrathin nanostructures are utilized to control the properties of light including its phase, amplitude and polarization. Hereby, we demonstrate the capability of such structures to perform arbitrary polarization selective beam shaping using dielectric nanoscale metasurfaces implemented in silicon. By illuminating the structure with right handed circular polarization we reconstruct a desired image. When switching the polarization into its orthogonal state, we obtain the reconstruction of a different image. This demonstration shows the potential of using dielectric metasurfaces for high efficiency beam shaping applications in general, and specifically for polarization coded beam shaping.
