Abstract

In this Letter, we demonstrate for the first time that by combining the effects of the Wood–Rayleigh anomaly (WRA) and the Fabry–Perot (FP) resonance, transmission efficiencies of one-dimensional metallo-dielectric gratings on substrates can be significantly improved compared to when these two phenomena work separately. Results of combining the WRA and the FP resonance can be utilized to eliminate the necessity of using the index matching technique and the core-shell structure for enhancing the performance of extraordinary optical transmission devices. Further, the outcomes of combining the WRA and the FP resonance can elucidate some of the unexplained results in the literature.
