Abstract
The new types of slow surface polaritons are demonstrated to propagate of the interface of homogeneous semiinfinite space and the layer-periodical structure (classic superlattice), which is made with layers of semiconductor and dielectric. For modern semiconductor and dielectric materials the phase velocity of this waves is value of the order VP h-4*107sm/s under the real parameters . Velocity of the carrier drift is known to be less than 7*107sm/s. It is shown in this paper, what slow surface polaritons can interact efficiently with carriers moving in homogeneous space. Different types of unstability are analyzed analytically and numerically. Increments of unstability are obtained.
