The anomalous transmission of electromagnetic wave in the cold over dense plasma is investigated using the quantum hydrodynamic approach. The quantum effect on the dispersion relation of the surface wave excited by the electromagnetic radiation is evaluated and compared with the classical regimes. It is shown that the quantum dispersion curve, in comparison with its classical behavior, has an asymptotic approach at larger wave numbers. Investigating the transmission conditions, the effects of the main different parameters of the model such as the plasma density and Fermi velocity on the rate of transmission are scrutinized.
