Abstract

The optical transmission of random patterns of holes is believed to depend on the transmission of the independent holes only. By comparing the transmission spectra of random patterns with different densities, we show that the quasi-cylindrical wave plays an important role in the transmission of samples with large hole densities. Furthermore, we report on a speckle pattern seen in the transmission of these arrays. By studying the degree of depolarization in this speckle pattern, as a function of hole density, we are able to quantify the role of surface plasmons to the transmission.
