Abstract

The planar interface of an isotropic homogeneous metal and an ambichiral dielectric material can guide surface-plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves. The planar interface of an isotropic, homogeneous dielectric material and an ambichiral dielectric material can guide Dyakonov-Tamm waves. In either instance, we found that, as the ambichiral partnering material evolves into a finely chiral material, the solutions of the dispersion equation for surface-wave propagation evince convergence. The convergence is faster for Dyakonov-Tamm waves than for SPP waves.
