Microscopic analysis of the energy, momentum and spin distributions in a surface plasmon-polariton wave: erratum

Open Access Open Access

Abstract

We correct inessential mistakes in equations of the recently published paper [Opt. Mater. Express 11, 2165 (2021) [CrossRef]  ]. The mistakes do not affect the numerical results and conclusions of the paper.

Four misprints are detected in equations of our paper [1]:

  • (1) The 1st Eq. (39) (Section 3.2, p. 2178) erroneously contains the coefficient “g” which should be replaced by “1/8π” so that the correct Eq. (39) reads:
    $${\textbf{p}^F} = \textbf{z}{p^F} = \frac{1}{{8\pi c}}\textrm{Re} ({\textbf{E}_{}^\ast{\times} \textbf{H}} ),\,\,\,{p^F} = \frac{1}{{8\pi c}}E_x^\ast {H_y}. $$
  • (2) In the unnumbered equation at the top of p. 2181 (Section 3.3), also “g” should be replaced by “1/8π” so that the correct form is as follows:
    $$\mathbf{z} p_{e}^{M}=\frac{1}{4} \mathbf{z} \operatorname{Im}\left(\alpha_{x x}^{\prime} E_{x}^{*} \frac{\partial E_{x}}{\partial z}+\alpha_{z z}^{\prime} E_{z}^{*} \frac{\partial E_{z}}{\partial z}\right) \simeq \frac{1}{16 \pi} \frac{d \varepsilon_{2}}{d \omega} \operatorname{Im}\left[\mathbf{E}^{*} \cdot(\nabla) \mathbf{E}\right]$$
  • (3) In Eq. (47) (Section 3.2, p. 2179) the “–” sign before the last summand in the brackets should be replaced by “+” so the correct form of Eq. (47) is
    $$s_R^M ={-} \frac{{2g}}{\omega }\frac{\eta }{{\varepsilon _2^2}}\frac{{{\kappa _2}}}{{{k_s}}}\left[ {{e^{2{\kappa_2}x}} - \left( {1 + \frac{{k_s^2}}{{\gamma {\kappa_2}}}} \right){e^{({{\kappa_2} + \gamma } )x}} + \frac{{k_s^2}}{{\gamma {\kappa_2}}}{e^{2\gamma x}}} \right]. $$
  • (4) In Eq. (71) (Section 3.4, p. 2185), the coefficient “η” was erroneously omitted in the last summand in brackets; the correct form of this equation reads:
    $$s = {s^F} + s_m^M + s_R^M ={-} \frac{g}{\omega }\frac{{{\kappa _2}}}{{\varepsilon _2^2{k_s}}}[{({1 + \eta } ){e^{2{\kappa_2}x}} - 2\eta {e^{({{\kappa_2} + \gamma } )x}}} ]. $$
These corrections do not influence the paper’s conclusions and the numerical data presented in figures.
