Abstract


The surface waves propagation at the interface between tunable MTMs and Nonlinear media is investigated. Tunable MTMs has refractive index which might be tuned to negative-zero-positive values. Nonlinear materials are assumed to have Kerr-like refractive index. The dispersion equation is analytically derived and solved numerically. Results display the different behavior of the propagating waves as the refractive index is tuned.
