Metamaterial and Other Waveguides

Surface waves are quite robust. In addition to the many surface wave structures discussed in previous chapters, we find the existence of a variety of other structures that can support surface waves. A few of these additional structures will be discussed here. They include the moving medium guide, the anisotropic medium guide, and the metamaterial waveguide.
