The conditions for and features of the excitation of Bessel plasmon-polaritons (BPP) are examined at the boundary of a hyperbolic metamaterial with a near-zero dielectric constant made of a dielectric matrix with metal nanorods embedded in it normal to its surface. This material is compared with BPP that have traditional surface plasmons. The effect of the absorption of the metamaterial on the excitation of BPP is studied. The possibility of changes in the direction of the radial energy fl ows in BPP excited at the surface of an isotropic medium, a hyperbolic metamaterial, is demonstrated and the conditions for these changes are determined.
