Abstract

We report on the existence of nonlinear surface waves that, on the one hand, do not require the threshold energy flow for their excitation, and, on the other hand, extend into media at both sides of the interface at low powers, i.e., cannot be reduced to the conventional Tamm states. Such waves can be excited if the refractive index in at least one of the materials forming the interface is periodically modulated, with properly selected modulation depth and frequency. Thresholdless surface solitons can be stable in the entire existence domain.
