Excitation of backward Tamm states at an interface between a periodic photonic crystal and a left-handed metamaterial

Namdar, Abdolrahman; Shadrivov, Ilya; Kivshar, Yuri


We study the excitation of electromagnetic surface waves in a slab of a left-handed metamaterial separating a one-dimensional periodic photonic crystal and a homogeneous dielectric medium, the so-called surface Tamm states. We show that such a layered structure can exhibit a giant lateral Goos-Hänchen shift of the scattered beam accompanied by a splitting of the reflected and transmitted beams due to the resonant excitation of surface waves at the interfaces between the left-handed metamaterial...[Show more]
