Periodic nanoaperture arrays in thin metallic films are well known to exhibit extraordinary optical transmission orders of magnitude higher than predicted by standard aperture theory [1]. In contrast, for thinner metal films a suppressed optical transmission has been reported [2]. Both effects can be explained by resonant coupling of the incident light to surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) via the array. Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) in combination with electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) is a powerful tool for the spatial and spectral characterization of the SPPs. However, STEM-compatibility restricts us to fabricate the films either free-standing or on a membrane, transparent for the electron beam. We present two STEM-compatible fabrication approaches for nanoaperture arrays in metallic films with thicknesses from 10 nm to 100 nm: Focused ion beam milling in a free-standing film or electron beam lithography on an electron transparent SiN membrane. The chosen range of film thickness corresponds to the transition region between enhanced and suppressed optical transmission.
