Paper Abstract

In several recent papers, layered waveguide structures with conductive interfaces have been discussed, whose propagation properties are controlled by a transverse voltage. These structures have wide range of applications. In this paper, surface wave excitation on one-dimensional photonic crystals at the presence of interface conductivity is discussed. It is shown that excitation of electromagnetic surface waves can be controlled by the interface conductivity. This property can be used in constructing miscellaneous optical devices such as optical modulators, switches and tunable optical filters. Devices based on these waves can be superior to surface plasmon waves since they are not lossy. The lossless property is satisfied in limited range: millimeter waves to far infra red.
