Abstract In 1861 Fizeau studied transmission of polarized light through a screen with subwavelength scratches [1], and in 1888 Hertz performed similar experiments with radio waves and a grid of wires, 1 which transmited polarized electromagnetic waves, of wavelength λ large compared to the wire spacing d, only if the electric field of the wave was perpendicular to the direction of the wires. Explain these observations. Discuss also the case of plane conducting sheets with slits, and the applications to this of Babinet’s principle. 2
