We show that a TM-polarized wave can propagate along the interface between a linear and a nonlinear dielectric medium, provided that a high-power TE-polarized wave is also present. On the basis of the threshold powers for the two waves, we predict that 100% modulation of the TM wave by the strong beam is possible.
