A metal layer is disposed on a surface of the periodic structure. The surface corresponds to a plane including a region of the reference plane surrounding the individual periodic elements and surfaces of the periodic elements. The metal layer's profile conforms to a surface profile of the periodic structure. The plurality of periodic elements have an interval therebetween in a first direction in which the plurality of periodic elements are arranged in a two-dimensional lattice form. The interval is different from an interval between the periodic elements in a second direction intersecting the first direction.
