Surface Exciton Polaritons

Abstract

Surface polaritons are elementary excitations which are propagating along the boundary between a crystal and an outside dielectric medium. The energy range of surface polaritons lies in the gap between the corresponding transverse and longitudinal bulk excitation energies. When this bulk excitation is a plasmon or a phonon or an exciton, the associated surface mode is called a surface plasmon or a surface phonon or a surface exciton polariton.
