In this paper, two kinds of Archimedean-like hole arrays [Archimedean 4 (A4) and Archimedean 7 (A7)] that have been fabricated in gold films and the optical transmission spectra from the visible to near-infrared region have been measured. With A4 and A7 hole arrays, the Fourier coefficients of reciprocal lattice vectors are manipulated, with which the transmission suppression and enhancement have been experimentally observed. The results provide the possibility to manipulate the light transmission through the design of both reciprocal vectors and Fourier coefficients by engineering the metal surface.
