Abstract

Abstract A theoretical investigation has been made of surface plasmon polariton modes in truncated superlattices using a local theory with retardation. The modes are characterized by electric fields that decay exponentially away from each interface and that have an envelope that decays exponentially away from the end of the truncated superlattice. A criterion for the existence of the surface models is developed. Numerical results are presented for several illustrative cases.
