Abstract

Here the behavior of periodic annular aperture arrays in a perfectly conducting film is considered as the geometry of the apertures is varied. Using a previously developed rigorous electromagnetic modal method it is shown that the far-field transmission spectrum approaches that for an array of circular apertures as the stop size approaches zero. In the case where the diameter of the apertures is significantly less than that of the period of the array, the behavior of the array changes gradually from one where the predominant features in the spectra are due to the excitation of a waveguide resonance to one exhibiting ‘extraordinary transmission’.

Plot of total transmitted power normalized to incident power for a plane wave normally incident on arrays of annular and circular apertures in screens of thickness 0.1d. Spectra are shown for arrays of annular apertures with an outer radius of 0.3d with inner radii of 0.28d (red curve), 0.15d (yellow curve), 0.1d (blue curve) and 0.03d (asterisks), while the black line shows the spectra for an array of circular apertures with a radius of 0.3d.

(a). Total normalized transmission through an array of circular apertures with radii varying from 0.2 – 0.45d in a screen of thickness 0.4d. The cutoff wavelength for the corresponding circular waveguide TE (1,1) mode is shown. (b) Total transmission through an array of annular apertures with outer radius varying from 0.1 – 0.45d in a screen of thickness 0.4d. The ratio of the outer aperture radius to the inner radius, a/b, is fixed at 1.125. The cutoff wavelength for the TE (1,1) coaxial waveguide mode is shown.
