Tamm states in one-dimensional photonic crystals containing left-handed materials

Namdar, Abdolrahman


We present a theoretical study of electromagnetic surface waves localized at an interface separating a conventional uniform medium and a semi-infinite one-dimensional photonic crystal made of alternate left-handed metamaterial and right-handed material, which we refer to as left-handed photonic crystal. We find unusual type of surface mode's structure, the so-called surface Tamm states and demonstrate that the presence of metamaterial in the photonic crystal structure allows for a flexible...[Show more]
