Paper Abstract

We study the dielectric constant dependent diffraction phenomena of single slit apertures, both theoretically and experimentally. We experimentally simulate perfect metal and real metal cases by investigating subwavelength diffraction by a single slit, both in nano-optical and in terahertz regimes, keeping the slit-width/wavelength ratio approximately the same for both of frequency regimes. The wave-front in optical regime separates itself into forward propagating beam and surface-bound 90-degree diffracted wave, i.e., surface plasmon polaritons; while the separation of modes is not observed in terahertz regime.
