Abstract

We measure the transmission of IR radiation through double-layer metal films with periodic arrays of subwavelength holes. When the two metal films are placed in sufficiently close proximity, two types of transmission resonances emerge. For the surface plasmon mode, the electromagnetic field is concentrated on the outer surface of the entire metallic layer stack. In contrast, for the guided mode, the field is confined to the gap between the two metal layers. Our measurements indicate that, as the two layers are laterally shifted from perfect alignment, the peak transmission frequency of the guided mode decreases significantly, while that of the surface plasmon mode remains largely unchanged, in agreement with numerical calculations.
