The dispersion relation in a system consists of a lossy metamaterials (MTMs) film surrounded by a linear substrate and a nonlinear cladding with an arbitrary nonlinearity is derived. The surface plasmonic (SP) wave at the interfaces between metamaterials (MTMs) and the nonlinear cover is recovered by taking certain limits. Results are presented by plotting the SP frequency as a function of the nonlinearity at chosen damping factors. Both the real and imaginary parts are studied. For comparison, the imaginary part is set to zero and curves are reproduced.
