Transmission of Light Through Small Elliptical Apertures (Part 2)

Masud Mansuripur, Armis R. Zakharian and Jerome V. Moloney

Last month, in Part 1 of this column, we analyzed the interaction of light with a subwavelength elliptical aperture in a thin metal film. The incident plane wave was assumed to be linearly polarized along the ellipse’s major axis. In this second and final installment, we take up the case of incident polarization aligned with the ellipse’s minor axis.
