Abstract

Extraordinary optical transmission is the widely known phenomenon of enhanced transmission of waves through subwavelength periodic metallic apertures. Here, we propose efficient terahertz transmission modulation in subwavelength metallic slits by a graphene plasmonic ribbon array. The extraordinary optical transmission through the subwavelength metallic slits can be tuned by coupling with the plasmonic resonance of graphene ribbon array, resulting in a deep transmittance depression. Numerical simulations show that maximal transmission modulation depth of 98.99% can be obtained at 1.03 THz via this mechanism.
