Abstract

A new type of long narrow aperture in a pyramidal structure on a thick metallic screen is proposed, and optical wave scattering by this structure is simulated. This aperture structure provides high emission intensity and small spot size simultaneously through excitation of the surface plasmon polaritons on the sidewalls of the pyramidal structure. Scattering of optical waves by this structure in the thick metallic screen is solved numerically with a volume integral equation by generalized conjugate residual iteration and fast Fourier transformation. The basic characteristics of the near-field intensities of the aperture are investigated in detail.
