The main features of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) that can propagate in a metamaterial–magnetic plasma structure are studied from theoretical perspectives. Both the conventional and imaginary parts of the dispersion relation of SPPs are demonstrated considering transverse magnetic (TM) polarization. We examine and discuss the influence of the external magnetic field. The results demonstrate that this factor dramatically alters the nature of SPPs. It is concluded that the positions and propagation lengths of SPPs can be engineered. Moreover, we present an approach allowing for an absorption enhancement that is a pivotal factor in antenna design. A unified insight into the practical methods aiming to attain hyperbolic dispersion by means of nanostructured and nanowire metamaterials is demonstrated. View Full-Text
