The existing theories which aim to explain the extraordinary optical transmission of a metallic film pierced by a two-dimensional subwavelength hole array @T.W. Ebbesen, H.J. Lezec, H.F. Ghaemi, T. Thio, and P.A. Wolff, Natural ~London! 391, 667 ~1998!# all have in common the following feature: instead of studying the two-dimensional crossed grating resulting from the hole array, they consider a one-dimensional grating with infinite slits. We show that such a simplification introduces an… 

Theory of extraordinary light transmission through arrays of subwavelength slits

We propose a self-consistent theory of the extraordinary light transmission through periodic arrays of subwavelength holes in metals. Its basis is an expansion of the light fields in terms of exact

Enhanced light transmission by hole arrays

The extraordinary optical transmission of a metallic film pierced by a two-dimensional subwavelength hole array, observed by Ebbesen et al, is explained using rigorous electromagnetic analysis and a

How light emerges from an illuminated array of subwavelength holes

The extraordinary optical transmission through periodic arrays of subwavelength holes has been studied extensively since it was first reported in 1998, owing to both its fundamental implications and

Resonant Transmission of Light Through Subwavelength Holes in Thick Metal Films

In this paper, we study how extraordinary transmission through an array of holes in a metallic film appears as a function of the number of holes and their distribution. We have used a theoretical

Effect of the subwavelength hole symmetry on the enhanced optical transmission through metallic films

We present here the measurements on the extraordinary optical transmission when light passes through different subwavelength hole arrays fabricated on a 120-nm-thick gold film by the focused ion beam

Investigation of Enhanced Transmission and Beaming Effect Through an InSb Subwavelength Grating With a Slit at the Terahertz Range

In this paper, we demonstrate the feasibility of realizing the extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) and the collimated beaming effect through InSb grating, which has a subwavelength slit

Explanation of extraordinary transmission on 1-D and 2-D metallic gratings

A rigorous numerical analysis is performed in order to discuss and reveal mechanisms responsible for the extraordinary transmission through 1-D and 2-D sub-wavelength arrays of infinite slits and

Three-dimensional structures for enhanced transmission through a metallic film: Annular aperture arrays

Light transmission through arranged nanostructures can be increased comparing to what was observed three years ago by Ebbesen et al. [Nature, 391, 667 (1998)]. The results obtained recently by

Mechanisms Responsible for Extraordinary Optical Transmission Through One-Dimensional Periodic Arrays of Infinite Sub-wavelength Slits: the Origin of Previous EOT Position Prediction Misinterpretations

We have studied theoretically and numerically the effect of extraordinary optical transmission of light propagating through the one-dimensional periodic arrays of infinite slits with sub-wavelength
