ABSTRACT
We report the experimental observation of photoinduced resonant transmission of light through a gold film deposited on a chalcogenide glass surface. This effect is caused by the formation of a photoinduced diffraction grating in the chalcogenide glass near the gold film surface by an optical pump beam. The transmittance of a probe beam is resonantly enhanced due to grating-induced coupling to surface electromagnetic excitations on the gold film surface. This observation demonstrates the feasibility of all-optical signal processing using the extraordinary light transmission of thin metal films.
