Abstract

When a guided mode is excited in a dielectric slab coupled to a backward surface wave at the interface between a dielectric and a left-handed medium, light is confined in the structure: this is a light wheel. Complex plane analysis of the dispersion relation and coupled-mode formalism give deep insight into the physics of this phenomenon (lateral confinement and the presence of a dark zone).
