Abstract

We study light beam propagation in periodic metallic nanostructures—metallic photonic crystals (MPhCs). In particular, we consider a two-dimensional rhombic array of metallic cylinders embedded in air and explore its ability to tailor spatial propagation of light beams. We show that the structure supports self-collimated propagation and negative (anomalous) diffraction. In this later case, flat lensing is observed, leading to the focusing of beams behind the MPhCs. Moreover, the anisotropic attenuation of light provided by the structure enables spatial filtering of noisy beams.
