In this poster, the optical transmission properties of plasmonic crystals are investigated. These crystals are 150nm Ag films perforated periodically with air holes in a triangular pattern. The optical transmission is measured as a function of incident angle and wavelength for p-polarization. The angle where peak transmission occurs is found to be wavelength dependent in a manner consistent with the Bragg diffraction model. This enhanced transmission is a result of surface plasmon resonance.
