In this study, we present experimentally measured transmission enhancement of microwaves through periodic slit arrays in metallic films. Enhanced transmission peaks and sharp transmission dips are clearly observed around the theoretically expected surface plasmon polariton(SPP) resonance frequencies. Dependence of the transmittance spectra on the geometrical properties of slits is also demonstrated by varying the slit width, slit periodicity and the thickness of metallic films. Transmission peaks and dips are originated from the coupling between the incident light and SPPs which are caused by the slit array that acts like a grating coupler. The obtained results are theoretically explained by solving the Maxwell's equations and by the diffraction theory with appropriate boundary conditions, and they are in good agreement with those calculated by the finite-difference time-domain method.
