The resonant behavior of linear birefringence and linear dichroism spectra is found in anisotropic optical metamaterials made of noble metal thin films with stripes and rectangular hole nanoapertures forming one- or two-dimensional subwavelength gratings. Differences in effective refractive index and extinction coefficient for linearly polarized eigenstates are increased in spectral range of resonances of local and surface plasmon-polaritons at the normal incidence and reach the values of ?n ? 2.5 and ?? ? 2.75, respectively. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2009.
