Abstract: Extraordinary optical transmission in free space through nanohole arrays has been widely investigated over the past two decades. However, because of its intrinsic nature of periodicity, it suffers from poor integration with nano-/micro-systems. Here, by folding a periodic grating into a compact cavity, we propose a waveguide-based structure within subwavelength, which also exhibits extraordinary optical transmission. Thus, lots of promising applications realized in metallic films can now be migrated onto integrated waveguides in an ultracompact way. Comparing the characteristics of the proposed integrated device and the conventional periodic structure, we reveal the nature of the unexpected transmission spectrum. Based on this principle, a collinear broadband (~500 nm) polarizer with extinction ratio of >17.8 dB is proposed, with an ultrashort length of 450 nm. Furthermore, this structure has the potential in biological applications when integrated into lab-on-a-chip or microfluidic system. As an example, a biosensor with enhanced sensitivity of 775 nm/RIU is presented.
