We present an optimized isotropic metal deposition technique used for coating three-dimensional polymer structures with a 50nm smooth silver layer. The technology allows fast isotropic coating of complex 3D dielectric structures with thin silver layers. Transmission measurements of 3D metallized woodpiles reveal a new phenomenon of enhanced optical trans-mission in broadband range (up to 300 nm) in the near IR.
