Abstract
The canonical problem of the propagation of surface-plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves localized to the planar interface of a metal and a sculptured nematic thin film (SNTF) that is periodically nonhomogeneous along the direction normal to the interface was formulated. Solution of the dispersion equation obtained thereby confirmed the possibility of exciting multiple SPP waves of the same frequency or color. However, these SPP waves differ in phase speed, field structure, and the e-folding distance along the direction of propagation.
