Topological non-Hermitian origin of surface Maxwell waves

Bliokh, Konstantin Y.; Leykam, Daniel; Lein, Max; Nori, Franco


Maxwell electromagnetism, describing the wave properties of light, was formulated 150 years ago. More than 60 years ago it was shown that interfaces between optical media (including dielectrics, metals, negative-index materials) can support surface electromagnetic waves, which now play crucial roles in plasmonics, metamaterials, and nano-photonics. Here we show that surface Maxwell waves at interfaces between homogeneous isotropic media described by real permittivities and permeabilities...[Show more]
