Abstract

Recent studies show that magnetic polaritons (MPs) are responsible for the extraordinary optical transmission in subwavelength periodic structures. However, the role of MP in double-layer nanoslit arrays has not been fully understood. This paper elucidates how MPs influence the radiative properties of nanoslit arrays at both normal and oblique incidences using the rigorous coupled-wave analysis. The existence of MPs is further confirmed by an equivalent L C circuit model. The effects of geometric parameters and lateral displacement on the resonance conditions are also investigated, and possible ways of tailoring the radiative properties of nanostructures for energy-harvesting applications are suggested.
