We demonstrate a compact multi-resonant metamaterial structure based on integrated U- and T-shaped nano-aperture antennas. We investigate the physical origin of the multi-resonant behavior and determine the parameter dependence of the nano-aperture antennas both experimentally and numerically. We also show enhanced field distribution in the apertures at the corresponding resonance wavelengths. Both multi-spectral response and enhanced near field distributions can open up exciting new opportunities in applications ranging from subwavelength optics and optoelectronics to chemical and biosensing.
