Resonant structure consisting of waveguide layer with metallic strips array is a promising design for various optical effects control and enhancement at the nanoscale due to its strong resonant properties and light localization phenomena. However, different applications require understanding the nature of eigenmodes of the structure, that possess peculiar properties. In this research, the optical properties of the planar waveguide with one-dimensional periodic gold grating on it was examined. Emitting layer of a-Si1-xCx:H was deposited by plasma chemical vapour deposition technique and the gold array was created by the e-beam lithography. Angle-resolved reflection and photoluminescence spectra in s- and p-polarizations were measured by the Fourier-imaging spectroscopy method. The theoretical analysis was performed to reveal the physical nature of the observed spectral features and their effect on the waveguide layer emitting properties was studied.
