Abstract

The transmission of light along the surface normal through an air-quartz-glass interface covered with a periodic array of thin, rectangular gold patches has been studied over the visible to infrared range. The various structures that are observed can be qualitatively understood as arising from standing-wave resonances set by the size and surroundings of the metal patches. A method-of-moments calculational scheme provides simulations in good quantitative agreement with the data. It is shown how the standing-wave picture provides a useful conceptual framework to understand and exploit such systems.
