Abstract

The spectral dependences of polarized optical transmission of a metal film with a periodic array of elliptical nanoholes have been studied. Such nanostructured metal films exhibit enhanced broadband optical transmission that one can control by selecting the polarization of incident and (or) transmitted light.

Spectra of polarized transmission of the array measured for different incident light polarization ϕ. The spectra of the light transmitted without polarization state change (PA, corresponding to the angle ψ=90° measured from the crossed orientation of the polarizer and analyzer axes), with orthogonal polarization PA,ψ=0°, and close to orthogonal polarizations ψ=±8° and ψ=-15° are shown.
