Abstract

This Letter presents a theory of extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) through a rectangular hole filled with the extreme uniaxial metamaterials with infinite longitudinal components of permittivity (ϵz) and permeability (μz). We demonstrate theoretically and numerically that a number of high-order transverse electromagnetic (TEM) modes can be supported by such a structure, and that, more interestingly, their normalized transmittance can be remarkably enhanced due to the Fabry–Perot resonance effect. A set of illustrative examples has been provided to demonstrate that such an EOT property could be explored for the purpose of subwavelength-resolution imaging.
