Abstract

The dispersion equation for surface waves - with simple transverse exponential decay at the interface of identical biaxial crystals with a relative twist about the axis normal to the interface and propagating along a bisector of the angle between the crystallographic configurations on either side of the interface - has several solutions of which only one is physical. The selected type of surface wave is possible only for a restricted range of the twist angle, which depends on the ratio of the maximum and the minimum of the principal refractive indexes and the angle between the optic ray axes.
