Paper Abstract

An analytical theory for extraordinary light transmittance through an optically thick metal film with sub-wavelength holes is developed. It is shown that the film transmittance has sharp peaks that are due to the Maxwell-Garnet resonances in the holes. At resonances electric and magnetic fields are dramatically enhanced in the holes. These resonances are proposed to guide light over a metal film at a nanoscale.
