We present a Finite Element Method (FEM) to calculate the complex valued k(omega) dispersion curves of a photonic crystal slab in presence of both dispersive and lossy materials. In particular the method can be exploited to study plasmonic crystal slabs. We adopt Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs) in order to truncate the open boundaries of the model, including their related anisotropic permittivity and permeability tensors in the weak form of Helmholtz's eigenvalue equation. Results of the model are presented in the interesting case of a holey metal film enabling to study the observed extraordinary optical transmission properties in term of the plasmonic Bloch modes of the structure.

Abstract

We present a Finite Element Method (FEM) to calculate the complex valued k(omega) dispersion curves of a photonic crystal slab in presence of both dispersive and lossy materials. In particular the method can be exploited to study plasmonic crystal slabs. We adopt Perfectly Matched Layers (PMLs) in order to truncate the open boundaries of the model, including their related anisotropic permittivity and permeability tensors in the weak form of Helmholtz's eigenvalue equation. Results of the model are presented in the interesting case of a holey metal film enabling to study the observed extraordinary optical transmission properties in term of the plasmonic Bloch modes of the structure.
