Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

System schematic with field and structure parameters defined. The structure includes the grating period (Λ), height (), width (), defined as where is the fill factor, and the distance between the substrate and grating (). The incident light is transverse magnetic (magnetic field directed in the -direction) polarized, and the incident angle from normal (θ) is in the -plane.

(a)-(c) Scanning electron micrographs of a representative grating with (a) a plan view, (b) a transverse cross-sectional view, and (c) a sidewall profile. (d), (e) Comparison between finite element simulations and experimental response for a grating with dimensions: m,  = 72%,  = 2.85 m, and  = 4.05 m exhibiting (d) broadband reflectance at normal incidence and (e) transmission filtering at . The numerical results have been reduced by 30% to account for the substrate bottom silicon/air interface.

Dispersion relations for even (blue) and odd (green) TM guided modes in (a) a nearly uniform slab with ,  = 3 m, and ; (b) a dielectric/air grating with the same parameters and  = 72%. Intersections with the red line (circles), within the gray light cone, show the phase-matching condition for light incident at , with (i) and (ii) indicating the observed transmission resonances. represents a third resonance condition corresponding to second order diffraction. (c) Electric () and magnetic () field profiles near zone center (  = 0) for mode (ii)+ and mode (ii)− responsible for the broadband reflectance and narrowband filtering, respectively.
