Paper Abstract

Zero-order transmission silver gratings of very narrow and deep enough slits exhibit exceptional transmission properties in visible and near-IR light. By using a rigorous electromagnetic analysis of light diffraction, we show that the transmission enhancement occurs as a result of a resonant interaction of the incident light with surface plasmons located inside the grating slits.
