Given a known bulk plasma frequency (say 3.7 PHz for aluminium), and a known incident wavelength (say 500nm), what's the expression for the relative permittivity of the metal?
For context, consider a plasmonic device that acts as a filter, with a nanoscale grid of holes in metal.
The maximum transmission wavelength at normal incidence is given by lambdamax = (a / sqrt(i2 + j2)) * sqrt((Em * Ed) / (Em + Ed))
Here, Em is the metal permittivity of interest, Ed is the permittivity of the dielectric substrate, say 4(ish) for SiO2.
(a is the lattice spacing.)

For the discussion of the sciences. Physics problems, chemistry equations, biology weirdness, it all goes here.
