Plasmonics enables the realization of new optical components. Here, we report yet another plasmonic component based on a pair of surfaces displaying grating coupled plasmon enhanced transmission. We observe high quality factor transmission peaks as high as 100 through our plasmonic filter based on gratings obtained directly from optical storage disks. Wavelength and polarization dependent transmission is also demonstrated in the visible and infrared portions of the spectrum. The resonance wavelength of this filter can be tuned by simply changing the angle of incidence. Numerical calculations agree well with measurements. Our work can open up directions toward disposable optical components such as filters and polarizers.

    We find and verify that unidirectional surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are highly excited by subwavelength metallic gratings with back-side illumination around the plasmonic critical angle (PCA). The conditions and physical origins of the SPP excitation around the PCA are clarified. Moreover,...
