Title: The electromagnetics of light transmission through subwavelength slits in metallic films
Published: August 15, 2011
Abstract: We show, by numerically calculating the relevant electromagnetic fields and charge current densities, how light transmission through single wsubwavelength apertures and through periodic aperture arrays in a real metal film is governed by local charges and currents generated around the structures.
