Dyakonov surface waves at the interface of nanocomposites with spherical and ellipsoidal inclusions

The dispersion properties of different types of surface electromagnetic waves which are supported by the interface of two nanocomposite materials with inclusions of different shape are studied theoretically and numerically. Both nanocomposites are made of doped n-type semiconductor inclusions which are evenly distributed in a transparent dielectric matrix. First nanocomposite contains semiconductor inclusions of spherical shape and can be represented as isotropic material with scalar effective dielectric permittivity. Second nanocomposite contains semiconductor inclusions of ellipsoidal shape and can be modeled as a uniaxial anisotropic crystal with two different principal effective permittivity components. Influence of physical and geometrical parameters of the nanocomposites on dispersion properties of surface waves is studied. It is shown that when dissipations in the semiconductor inclusions are taken into account the angular spectrum of Dyakonov surface wave existence becomes wider, and several dispersion curves of surface modes can simultaneously exist.
