Phonon-polaritons are studied both theoretically and experimentally in a one-dimensional two-component generalized quasiperiodic piezoelectric superlattice. The experimental observation of phonon-polaritons through dielectric abnormality is carried out at the microwave region. Some potential applications are discussed.

    A metal film perforated by a regular array of subwavelength holes shows unexpectedly large transmission at particular wavelengths, a phenomenon known as the extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) of metal hole arrays. EOT was first attributed to surface plasmon polaritons, stimulating a...
