The propagation of Dyakonov surface waves (DSWs) at the planar interface between an isotropic material and a linear electrooptic birefringent material can be dynamically controlled using the Pockels effect. The range of directions for DSW propagation has been previously found to be rather narrow. By careful choice of various parameters, this range of directions can be increased by more than an order of magnitude.
