Abstract

The light transmission spectrum has been calculated for a “cholesteric liquid crystal–phase plate–metal” structure. It is shown that the system can have an isolated waveguide surface mode with characteristics efficiently controllable by external fields acting on the cholesteric. The degree of localization of surface modes and the transmission coefficients have been found to differ considerably for the light of different polarizations.
