Anomalous Light Absorption around Subwavelength Apertures in Metal Films

Abstract : In this work, we study the heat dissipated at metal surfaces by the electromagnetic field scattered by isolated subwavelength apertures in metal screens. In contrast to our common belief that the intensity of waves created by local sources should decrease with the distance from the sources, we reveal that the dissipated heat at the surface remains constant over a broad spatial interval of a few tens of wavelengths. This behavior which occurs for noble metals at near infrared wavelengths is observed with nonintrusive thermoreflectance measurements and is analyzed with an analytical model which underlines the intricate role played by quasi-cylindrical waves in the phenomenon. Additionally, computational results reveal that the absorption plateau is an intrinsic property that occurs for a large variety of topologies, irrespective of aperture shapes.
