Abstract
A very large transmission, 20%, of light through a nano metallic slit bordered by both nano trenches and bumps has been demonstrated theoretically. The trenches bordering the nano slit, are used to excite free-space light into surface waves, while the bumps bordering the trenches are used to confine surface wave leakage. Over 50% of the escaping surface waves can be reclaimed by using a pair of bumps with a reflectivity larger than 99%. As a result, the transmission of a trench-surrounded slit bordered by a pair of bumps can be enhanced 1.5 fold.
