Surface Excitations in Absorbing Media
Exact Propagation Constants and Poynting Vectors Are Calculated for Surface Excitations at an Interface between Two Media with Complex Dielectric Functions. It is Found that the Electric Fields Associated with the Surface Excitations Decay as Damped Oscillating Exponentials. It is Also Found that the Mean-Free-Paths Can Be of the Order of Meters, Even in the Presence of Damping. at Intermediate Frequencies, the Surface Plasmon Mean-Free-Paths Are Proportional to the Free Carrier Lifetime. © 1973.
