A new device which combines both acousto-optic and electro-optic effects in one integrated manner using surface acoustic wave technology has been implemented and offers unique advantages. In particular, this permits an additional input port for information which leads to compact implementation and simplified architecture in optical signal processing applications. The objective of this letter is to present some theoretical and experimental results in the Raman–Nath regime. These are found to agree over the range of investigation.

    We propose a biosensor based on the diffraction of Bloch surface waves (BSWs) in periodic dielectric stacks. Significant enhancement of diffraction efficiency by a biomolecule grating placed on the multilayer is predicted when a BSW is excited through a prism in the Kretschmann configuration....

    A large negative or positive lateral shift of the beam reflected from a left-handed prism coated with a weakly absorbing dielectric film is investigated theoretically. It is shown that the large lateral shift can be negative as well as positive due to the formation of the unusual guided modes in...

    By exploiting the excitation of a Bloch surface wave at a wavelength λ=670 nm, we observe a diffraction enhancement of more than 45 times from a rabbit IgG protein grating printed on a-SiN:H multilayers. Our results demonstrate that the use of surface states in dielectric multilayers is very...

    The authors study the electromagnetic surface waves localized at an interface separating a one-dimensional photonic crystal and left-handed metamaterial, the so-called surface Tamm states. They demonstrate that the metamaterial allows for a flexible control of the dispersion properties of...

    Light transmitting through a subwavelength slit on an ordinary metal plate is diffracted to all directions but if the exit plane of the slit is patterned with periodical nanostructures, the diffracted light may be compressed into a collimated beam within a small angle. In this paper, we develop...

    In this study, we were interested in the dispersion of surface waves caused by the presence of a micrometric field of residual stress on the surface of an amorphous medium. We have shown that in relation to surface waves, a stressed structure like this is comparable to a layer on substrate type...
