Backward Tamm States in Left-handed Metamaterials

Namdar, Abdolrahman; Shadrivov, Ilya; Kivshar, Yuri


The authors study the electromagnetic surface waves localized at an interface separating a one-dimensional photonic crystal and left-handed metamaterial, the so-called surface Tamm states. They demonstrate that the metamaterial allows for a flexible control of the dispersion properties of surface states and can support the Tamm states with a backward energy flow and a vortexlike structure.
