Wolff, Nature 391, 667 (1998). -The effect is accompagnied by a field surprising funneling of light at the resonance transmission and of a strong squeezing of light in small volumes. Hhow do we understand that for specific wavelength, no light goes through, and for some other one, more light is transmitted than the light directly impinging onto the hole apertures? The initial vision proposed by ebessen and his coworkers to explain the EOT is the excitation of SPPs on the metallic surface. Since 10 years, there have been a considerable amount of works to explain the EOT, experimental numerical, and theoretical works. I just peak out two beautiful contributions leading to an anlytical formula for the transmission. -The effect is accompagnied by a field surprising funneling of light at the resonance transmission and of a strong squeezing of light in small volumes.

11 Wire grid polarizer Inductive-capacitive grids Hertz (1888) first used a wire grid polarizer for testing the newly discovered radio wave. J.T. Adams and L.C. Botten J. Opt. (Paris) 10, 109–17 (1979). R. Ulrich, K. F. Renk, and L. Genzel, IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory Tech. 11, 363 (1963). C. Compton, R. D. McPhedran, G. H. Derrick, and L. C. Botten, Infrared Phys. 23, 239 (1983). Nearly 100% of the incident energy is transmitted at resonance frequencies for TM polarization

12 Poles and zeros of the scattering matrix tFtF  (nm) |tF|2|tF|2 E. Popov et al., PRB 62, (2000). tF tF  - z - p rFrF -Global analysis. -Why does the pole exist? Why does the zero exist? Why are they close or not to the real axis? The Fano-type formula is very elegant but does not explain why the pole exist, why it is close or not to the real axis.

13 tF =tF = t A 2 exp(ik 0 nd)  r A 2 exp(2ik 0 nd) The surface-mode interpretation you assume that inside the grating, the light is transmitted from the top to the bottom interfaces only via the fundamental evanescent mode of the hole array. (Doing that, one obtains a FP formula, where the exponential factor is small because the effective index is imaginary. The resonant transmission is then explained as a resonance of the rA and tA coefficients.) Doing that you obtain a FP-like analytical expression of the transmission coefficient. This is great but not completely satisfactory since the resonance of the transmission coefficient is explained through the resonance of another scattering coefficient. This is something like shifting the real problem. Le probleme avec cette interpretation, c'est que peu de temps apres de nouvelles manips ont montre que la TEO pouvait etre reproduite a des ld bcp plus grandes, ds l'infrarouge puis ds le domaine THz. La le metal peut etre considerer comme quasi parfait et l'interpretation à base de plasmon de surface you assume that inside the grating, the light is transmitted from the top to the bottom interfaces only via the fundamental evanescent mode of the hole array.

17 tF =tF = t A 2 exp(ik 0 nd)  r A 2 exp(2ik 0 nd) Weaknesses of classical grating theories -The resonance of t F is explained by the resonance of another scattering coefficients. -In reality, nothing is known about the waves that are launched in between the hole and that are responsible for the EOT -The resonance of t F is explained by the resonance of another scattering coefficients. This is unsatisfactory. -In reallity, nothing is known about the waves that are launched inbetween the hole and that are responsible for the EOT -The resonance of t F is explained by the resonance of another scattering coefficients.

19 Indeed what is missing is a microscopic (or mesoscopic) theory, which explicitely considers the excitation of surface modes inbetween the holes, their further scattering with nearby holes, coupling their energy to free space and to the holes themselves. Thinking that way one gets a microscopic of light scattering by metallic gratings. This is in opposition with the usual macroscopic description, where we use global physical quantities, such as plane-wave expansion above and below the grating, and Bloch-mode expansion in the grating region.
