Abstract

The nonlinear waves propagating in a metamaterial (MM) film bounded by Kerr-type dielectric media are investigated. It is shown that the waves propagate in surface mode at nearly 95% probability. We calculate the power flow in the MM waveguide and find the existence of forward or backward waves propagating in the guiding film. A thorough investigation of the power confinement factor reveals that it can be tuned by a set of parameters pertaining to the incident frequency and the width of the MM film. We expect the theoretical analysis can provide ideas for potential applications in the field of information processing.
