11 Main results from mode theory Phenomenological polology E. Popov et al., PRB 62, (2000). Resonance-assisted tunneling L. Martín-Moreno et al., PRL 86, 1114 (2001). Spoof plasmon J. Pendry et al., Science 305, 847 (2004). The Fano-type formula is very elegant as it well reproduce the spectral lineshape with o,nly 5 real parameters. It additionnally shows that the EOT is a resonance phenomenon. The modes in these works are GLOBAL quantities attached to periodic ensembles; they give a good insight into the macroscopic mechanisms responsible for the transmission, but nothing is known about the individual plasmons that are launched inbetween the holes of the array.  T "SPOOF" SPP k // resonance More insight has been provided by Martin-Moreno who showed that the resonance occurs at interfaces and that they boosts an evanescent tuneling.  Pendry showed that the same resonant-assisted mechanism occurs at low frequencies, and introduced the concept of spoof plasmons.

12 Surface plasmon assisted transmission? If one derives a model of the EOT where only SPP are assumed to carry the energy between adjacent hole chains and compares with fully-vectorial computations, then one should allow us to quantify what is really due to SPP in the EOT.

64 64 En appui sur la physique mathématique et la puissance accrue des calculateurs, l’optique électromagnétique a pris son essor en même temps que les nano- technologies, et a ainsi favorisé la conception d’objets photoniques aux dimensions sub-longueurs d’onde. Cette discipline a connu des progrès et un impact considérables au cours des deux dernières décades: compression temporelle et confinement spatial, super-résolution, exaltation géante et lumière lente, indices négatifs, cristaux photoniques et méta-matériaux, fibres micro-structurées, plasmonique et nano-antennes, laser aléatoire, imagerie en milieu désordonné, polarisation de speckle… Les applications couvrent de nombreux secteurs : télécommunications, éclairage, spatial, santé, énergie et environnement, défense… Claude Amra, Marseille
