Abstract

Metallic plates embedded between dielectric slabs and perforated by rectangular arrays of subwavelength holes with a dense periodicity in one of the directions support extraordinary transmission (ET) phenomena, viz. strong peaks in the transmittance frequency dependence. Stacks of such perforated plates support ET phenomena with propagation along the stack axis that is characterized by the left handed behavior. The incorporation of the dielectric materials and dense periodicity allows significantly reducing the illuminated area of the perforated plate required experimentally to observe the ET phenomena as compared to the areas required in the case of free standing rectangular hole arrays. This facilitates the experimental investigation of ET under excitation in the Fresnel zone of aussian beams.

Photographs of the prototypes. (a) Rectangular periodicity subwavelength hole array with parameters dx = 1.5 mm, dy = 4 mm, hole diameter a = 1.2 mm, metallization thickness (copper) t = 35 microns, dielectric thickness h = 0.49 mm and dielectric permittivity ε = 2.43. Squared periodicity subwavelength hole array with hole diameter a = 2 mm (b) and a = 2.5 mm (c), the rest of parameters being: dx = dy = 5 mm, metal thickness (aluminum) t = 0.5 mm. (d) Schematic of the stacked hole array with parameters dy = 3.4 mm, dz = 0.525 mm and the rest as in (a).

(a) Simulated transmission coefficient magnitude comparing two rectangular periodicity infinite hole arrays with parameters as in Fig. 1(a), one immersed in air (blue curve) and the other one sandwiched between two dielectric slabs of thickness h = 0.49 mm and relative dielectric permittivity εr = 2.43 (cyan curve). Green and magenta curves correspond to square periodicity infinite hole arrays embedded in air shown in Fig. 1(b) and (c) respectively. (b) Measured transmission coefficient magnitude for single plate subwavelength hole arrays prototypes. Solid cyan curve corresponds to the parallel polarization excitation (copolar) of the rectangular periodicity hole array shown in Fig. 1(a) and sandwiched between two identical dielectric slabs of thickness h = 0.49 mm and dielectric permittivity εr = 2.43. Dashed cyan curve is for the orthogonal polarization (crosspolar). Green and magenta curves correspond to square periodicity hole arrays embedded in air shown in Fig. 1(b) and (c) respectively.

(a) Dispersion diagram particularized to the first band of the stacked hole array separated by air slabs (blue) and by εr = 2.43 dielectric slabs (green). (b) Experimental transmission coefficient magnitude of stacked hole arrays. Solid lines correspond to copolar excitation of the rectangular periodic hole array on the dielectric slab structure, i.e. E-field in the direction of the large periodicity and dashed lines to the orthogonal polarization. (c) and (d) Phase response in and out of the LHM band respectively. In (b), (c) and (d) black is for two plates, red for three plates and blue for four plates
