Electromagnetic  Surface-Wave  Engineering

Surface waves were always looked upon as an adverse effect causing undesired coupling, parasitic radiation and significant power losses in planar structures. However, by clever surface-wave engineering, new and efficient devices can be made for many practical applications - all driven by electromagnetic surface waves.
