Abstract

In this paper we analyze the propagation of Dyakonov surface waves (DSWs) at the interface between hexagonal-boron-nitride (h-BN) and isotropic dielectric material. Various properties of DSWs supported at the dielectric-elliptic and dielectric-hyperbolic types of interfaces have been theoretically investigated, including the real effective index, propagation length, the angular existence domain (AED) and the composition ratio of evanescent field components in an h-BN crystal and isotropic dielectric material, respectively. The analysis in this paper reveals that h-BN could be a promising anisotropic material to observe the propagation of DSWs and may have potential diverse applications, such as high sensitivity stress sensing or optical sensing of analytes infiltrating dielectric materials.
