**Different configurations for exciting a guided mode**

kxoy K kg 1. A single guided mode kg is excited with a single evanescent wave under oblique incidence Resonance very sensitive to the incident angle and the incident polarization Typically = 5nm for a = 0.2deg Bad performances with standard collimated beam

11
**Transmittance of the normal incidence notch filter**

Here are the transmittivity spectra for a normal incidence filter. On the left picture you can see the spectral transmittivity. Experimentally we have two curves with squares and stars for two orthogonal polarizations. The spectral width is of 0.4nm and the minimum of transmittance is about 20% which is very close to the theoretical curve with the dots. The calculation is performed for a gaussian incident beam. If we considere a true plane wave the minimum of transmittance is theoretically of 0%. The angular behaviour is plotted on the right. The p polarization corresponds to a very large angular tolerance while the s polarization corresponds to the thinnest resonance. The experiment curve with circles correspond to a s+p polarization and is so an intermediate case between the two theoretical curves.

12
Oblique incidence filter: location of the minima of transmittivity versus and for s and p polarizations experience B’ A’ theory A B experimental and theoretical curves are similar (same gap width ~ 5nm, opening around 5.8°) spectral shift: due uncertainty on layer thickness or layer index

13
Experience Theory (gaussian beam) Points A and A’: polarization independence Gaussian beam: diameter at waist 580µm, full angle divergence 0.2° theoretically Dl=0.2nm (Plane wave: Dl=0.1nm ) experimentally Dl=0.4nm Points B and B’: s and p resonances split and filter performances deteriorated

14
**Conclusion Few number of layers and subwavelength grating**

Specific 2D grating design => polarization independence and good angular tolerance Experimental demonstration of ultra narrowband inverse filters =0.4nm Improvement of the maximum R value: larger grating surface (4mm2) and designs with even higher angular tolerance
