Abstract

The phenomenon of extraordinary transmission in the optical regime for circular hole arrays in optically thick metal films is studied as a function of hole size and depth. In the limit of small holes compared to the depth, the transmission properties follow a waveguide type behavior. By describing the transmission process as resulting from the interference between a resonant and a non-resonant contribution, a transition is clearly revealed through the specific spectral variations of the resonance at a given hole depth. This transition is associated to a change in the attenuation through the hole as its size increases, and corresponds to the optimal condition for surface plasmon excitation.

Fig. 1.

SEM images (magnification 65kx) of holes in a square array (period P = 460nm) made from 30×30 holes, milled through a 260nm thick Au film, with hole diameters d = 150nm(a) and d = 250nm(b)

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Transmission spectra of square arrays of circular holes (30×30 holes) with a period of 460nm milled through an Au film of thickness 180nm deposited on a glass substrate. The color scale corresponds to different hole sizes.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Normalized transmission peak intensities associated to the (1, 0) SP mode excited on the metal-glass interface for different film thickness as a function of hole diameter. This resonance enhances the transmission through the holes and for certain arrays, the normalized transmission can exceed unity (black horizontal line): the regime of EOT.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Normalized transmission peak intensities that were measured for varying hole sizes and depths. The continuous lines give the transmission expected through subwavelength cylindrical waveguides at 800nm, as given by Eq. (3)

Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

Normalized transmission spectra measured for different hole sizes in a 190nm thin Au film deposited on a glass substrate. The numbers on the right-hand side of the graph give hole diameters in nanometers. In the chosen spectral bandwidth, each spectrum is fitted using Eq. (4)

Evolution of the fitting parameters (a) width Γ (at FWHM of the resonance), (b) spectral shifts Δ from the natural resonance position λ 0 and (c) strength ratio ρ between the two contributions as a function of the hole diameter.

Fig. 8.

Evolution of the global prefactor α associated to the (non-resonant) transmittance through each hole. Fitting results given from Eq. (4) are plotted as black squares. The red line displays a simple (d/λres )4 dependence.
