Abstract:

Two problems are considered. In the first problem, the properties of surface waves propagating in a slab of uniaxially anisotropic dielectric are studied. The slab is of finite thickness and the relative dielectric constants of the dielectric tensor are all positive. Two cases are studied simultaneously, one being the case where the optical axis is chosen parallel to the slab, and the other being the case where the optical axis is chosen perpendicular to the slab. Only E-mode surface waves are studied since these have the properties of extraordinary type waves. A transverse resonance procedure is utilized in the determination of the surface wave resonances. It is found that at any frequency the resonances are finite in number. In the second problem, the electromagnetic fields of a uniaxially anisotropic plasma slab in the presence of a magnetic line source are studied. The geometry is the same as for the first problem, except that the optical axis is chosen parallel to the slab and perpendicular to the direction of the line source.
