Paper Abstract

Optical responses in Bi-layer metallic nanowire grating are investigated. There are two kinds of Surface Plasmon resonances: lateral propagating Surface Plasmon waveguide modes excited by the diffraction of the grating which lead to dips in transmission; Surface Plasmon resonance between the slits of the grating, which leads to high extinction ration of TM to TE transmission. With simultaneous resonances, a compacted device of integrated color filter and polarizer can be achieved. In order to improve the transmission of TM light, an undercut structure is proposed. The mechanism of the enhancement is analyzed. Bi-layer metallic nanowire gratings are fabricated by laser interference lithography and subsequent E-beam deposition. The measured transmission and reflection spectra confirmed the theoretical and numerical simulations. The results will have wide potential applications in Displays, Optical communication, and integrated Optics.
