We study the transmission properties of metallic nanowire arrays on dielectric waveguide substrates. The optical response of these metallic photonic crystal slabs is strongly affected by the coupling between their photonic (waveguide mode) and electronic (localized particle plasmon) resonances. A large Rabi splitting of 240 meV is found in transmission measurements when waveguide mode and particle plasmon are tuned to resonance. Our experimental results agree well with scattering matrix calculations.
