Paper Abstract

Surface-wave propagation at the planar interface of a columnar thin film (CTF) -- a biaxial dielectric medium -- and an isotropic dielectric substrate may occur over a narrow range of propagation directions, range being dependent on (i) the bulk matgerial that is evaporated to deposit the CTF, (ii) the vapor incidence angle used for the deposition, and (iii) the refractive index of the substrate material.
