N2 - In this paper we analyse the recently reported structure with left-handed (LH) propagation obtained by periodically staking subwavelength hole arrays working at the extraordinary transmission (ET) resonance.

It is seen that ET is necessary to ensure a strong inductive character of the apertures.
