This paper discusses the localization processes of optical radiation when surface electromagnetic waves (SEWs) are excited in ordered arrays of scattering inhomogeneities whose size is much less than the wavelength of light. The features of the SEW excitation when ultrashort laser pulses act on the surface of a semiconductor are also investigated. The possibility of spatial and temporal localization of optical radiation in an SEW is analyzed.
