Abstract

We investigate the strong electromagnetic coupling that settles in dual metallic grating structures. This coupling is evidenced to lead to a perfect optical extinction in the transmission spectrum. The behavior of this perfect extinction that strongly depends on the longitudinal space and the lateral displacement between the two gratings can be explained by a simple model that describes the interference between a propagating mode and a couple of evanes cent modes. The results show that the electromagnetic transmission of the structure can be tuned by controlling the position of this perfect transmission extinction and thus pave the way to new types of infrared tunable filters.
