In this paper, a novel plasmonic bandgap cavity inducing the enhancement of extraordinary optical transmission is presented. Numerical simulations have been performed to model a free-standing structure made of a one-dimensional periodic arrangement of gold strips. Two different values of the lattice constant have been properly chosen to realize a double heterostructure-like cavity to accomplish extraordinary optical transmission assisted by the formation of a plasmonic bandgap in the adjacent regions. Numerical results prove the capability of this optical device to efficiently transmit input light beams with far-field transmission values close to 100% due to the excitation of surface plasmon polariton resonant modes.
