We study the guided modes in the wire medium slab taking into account both the nonlocality and losses in the structure. We show that due to the fact that the wire medium is an extremeley spatially dispersive metamaterial, the effect of nonlocality plays a critical role since it results in coupling between the otherwise orthogonal guided modes. We show that such a structure supports a set of deep subwavelength propagating modes and that it exhibits properties of a single mode waveguide at any...[Show more]
