Paper Abstract

In this paper we report an experimental and theoretical study of the optical properties of metallodielectric gratings with subwavelength gaps in the thin metal limit. A mask-free method of fabrication for large area submicron silver gratings on silica substrates has been developed using soft-lithographic techniques. By measuring the zeroth-order transmission of these gratings, both an edge anomaly associated with the Rayleigh wavelength and a resonant anomaly associated with the excitation of surface plasmons (SPs) are observed. A crossed grating configuration is studied: the presence of the additional crossed grating results in a dramatic widening of the plasmonic band gap relative to that of a 1D grating.
