A (very loose) definition A surface wave is a wave which propagates along the interface between two different media and which decays away from this interface decay direction of propagation

Mathematical preliminaries linear theory (small oscillations) time-harmonic motion F(x,t) = Re[ f(x) e -i  t ]  is the angular frequency (  is in Hz) f(x) is complex – it describes both the amplitude and phase of the wave e i kx represents a wave travelling in the x-direction with wavelength  =  k linear theory (small oscillations) time-harmonic motion F(x,t) = Re[ f(x) e -i  t ]  is the angular frequency (  is in Hz) f(x) is complex – it describes both the amplitude and phase of the wave e i kx represents a wave travelling in the x-direction with wavelength  =  k

Elastic waves In an infinite elastic solid, two types of waves can propagate u = u L + u T =  ×  longitudinal (P) waves, speed c L transverse (S) waves, speed c T c T < c L In rock, c L ≅ 6 kms -1, c T ≅ 3.5 kms -1,

SAW devices http://tfy.tkk.fi/optics/research/m1.php In the 1960s it was realised that Surface Acoustic Waves (Rayleigh waves) could be put to good use in electronics There are many types of SAW device They are used, e.g., in radar equipment, TVs and mobile phones Worldwide, about 3 billion SAW devices are produced annually

Electromagnetic surface waves x y z ,, ,, ,, ,, E = Ê e i l z, H = Ĥ e i l z Maxwell’s equations show that the field is determined from Ê z and Ĥ z. Both satisfy the Helmholtz equation  2 u+(k 2 - l 2 )u=0 k 2 =    c  Tangential components of E and H must be continuous on r = (x 2 +y 2 ) 1/2 = a Require decay as r  ∞ k’ 2 =  ’  ’    c 

Array guided surface waves decay 1D array in 2D 1D array in 3D 2D array in 3D waves exist due to the periodic nature of the geometry Barlow & Karbowiak (1954)

McIver, CML & McIver (1998) antisymmetric modes are also possible det(  mn +Z m  n-m (  )) = 0 quasiperiodicity  (x+1,y) = e i   (x,y) quasiperiodicity  (x+1,y) = e i   (x,y) 1D array in 2D acoustic waves, rigid cylinders a = 0.25, k =  /c = 2.5,  = 2.59  2  +k 2  = 0

 d – l d dispersion curves f/d=0.5, a/d=0.25, Kd=2,3,4,5,6,7 energy propagates normal to these isofrequency curves in the direction of increasing K

Transmitted energy over a finite array Kd=4, f/d=0.5, a/d=0.25 band gap for Kd=4 corresponds to l d in (2.808,3.017), or angle of incidence between 44.6 and 49.0 degrees CML (2011) 41° 43° 45° 47° 49° 50°
