The optical transmission through an aperture punched in an opaque metal (usually silver) film is extremely small when the aperture diameter d is much smaller than the wavelength, d/spl Lt//spl lambda//sub 0/. The optical transmission can be enhanced greatly when one or both surfaces of the metal film have periodic corrugations, provided the corrugations are chosen properly, as described in various papers, and discussed in the companion paper, Part 1. The best explanation to date for the… CONTINUE READING
