Abstract

We present optical measurements performed on a gold film deposited on deep subwavelength grooves etched in a quartz substrate at visible wavelengths where the Wood–Rayleigh (WR) anomaly and surface plasmon polaritons (SPs) are well separated. The measurements show that transmission of TM-polarized light through the slit array vanishes when SPs are excited at the air–metal interface, whereas the WR anomaly appears as small peaks.

(a) SEM image of a grating with Λ = 600 nm . (b) Schematic of the grating profile. Thick lines indicate gold film, Q stands for quartz. Λ, W, and h, respectively, are grating period, groove width, and depth. Dashed line arrows indicate propagation directions of SPs on the two interfaces.

(a) Transmission spectra are shown around λ Λ as a function of angle of incidence θ for the grating with Λ = 620 nm . (b) The gray-scale plot in the λ θ plane shows the data of (a) together with calculated loci of the WR anomaly on the grating (dotted lines) and surface plasmon dispersion (dashed–dotted lines) on a flat air–metal interface. Note that dark (white) regions indicate large (small) transmission.
