We report in this letter the fabrication of unique single-crystalline silver filaments with periodic, pearl-chain-like structures by electrodeposition without using any templates, surfactants, and additives. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, infrared focus-plane-array imaging, and numerical simulations demonstrate that the excited surface waves may sustain on the silver “pearl chains” in midinfrared range. Based on the propagation features of surface waves on the silver filaments, we suggest that such a structure can be applied for light transmission in midinfrared range.

    All-optical techniques are well-suited for the nondestructive imaging of acoustic waves, but until recently it was not possible to image high frequency surface acoustic wave (SAW) propagation in real time on crystals. We are at present successfully developing such a method for the imaging of SAW...

    We study the behaviour of surface waves propagating along the ionopause of the planet Mars and derive the onset criteria for unstable Kelvin-Helmholtz modes and negative energy waves at the Martian ionopause. Growth rate of unstable Kelvin-Helmholtz mode decreases with wavelength. The backward...

    We demonstrate a reflection-type sensor in the midinfrared spectra based on resonant excitation of surface phonon polaritons (SPhPs). In this range, SPhPs are characterized by the high density of states associated with slow surface waves that lead to enhanced resonance absorption. Delocalized...

    The transmission properties of liquid surface waves through a biconvex array of rigid cylinders, arranged in a two-dimensional periodic lattice, are studied experimentally and numerically. Both experimental and numerical results show that this biconvex array of rigid cylinders can act as a lens,...
