Abstract

Transmission properties of metallic gratings coated symmetrically with a dielectric layer on both sides are studied theoretically. For subwavelength narrow slits, besides cavity resonances in slits and surface plasmon-polaritons, a new kind of mechanisms for enhanced transmission in coated metallic gratings, namely, guided resonances in the dielectric coating layers, is found. Transmission peaks mediated by guided resonances are found to be much sharper than those mediated by cavity or surface plasmon-polariton resonances.

Fig. 1.

Transmission spectrum (solid line) of the Ag grating coated symmetrically with a 600 nm dielectric layer on both sides at normal incidence. Dashed line represents transmission spectrum for the Ag grating immersed in a dielectric background with a dielectric constant of 2.25.

Fig. 2.

Magnetic field distributions for (a) 625 nm, (b) 691 nm, (c) 762 nm, and (d) 884 nm transmission peaks at normal incidence. Light is incident from the bottom of the coated Ag grating. Lines depict schematically the profile of the Ag grating and the dielectric coating layers. Bright and dark regions represent positive and negative magnitudes, respectively. Horizontal and vertical axes measure the dimension of the coated Ag grating (not scaled).
