Abstract

The Uller–Zenneck wave has been theoretically predicted to exist at the planar interface of two homogeneous dielectric materials of which only one must be dissipative. Experimental confirmation of this century-old prediction was obtained experimentally by exciting the Uller–Zenneck wave as a Floquet harmonic of nonzero order at the periodically corrugated interface of air and crystalline silicon in the 400-to-900-nm spectral regime. Application for intrachip optical interconnects at 850 nm appears promising.
