Paper Abstract

The electromagnetic field distribution in the corrugated-metal semiconductor system was computed. When the reciprocal grating vector equals the difference of wave vectors of the surface modes at the two interfaces of the metal film, the effective resonant tunneling of the electromagnetic field through the metal film is possible. Used as selective photodetectors or light emitting devices, this may substantially increase the efficiency of the mentioned structures.
