Abstract:

"Standard textbooks on optics neglect the fact that light interacting with metal surfaces or interfaces can excite longitudinal plasma waves inside the metal. [...] A major aim of this book is to demonstrate that it is not only necessary to include plasma waves in the calculation of the optical response of a variety of systems containing metal surfaces and layers, but that it is also possible to do so within a rather simple, straightforward extension of classical Fresnel optics, the so-called "hydrodynamic approximation" (HD). This HD has a clear physical concept and is easy to handle mathematically. In addition to the familiar transverse electromagnetic waves, it includes longitudinal waves which are also solutions of Maxwell's equations if the wave-number dependence of the dielectric function, i.e. "spatial dispersion", is taken into account in a Drude-type theory. From a theoretical point of view, the HD is the simplest approximate version of "nonlocal optics". To discuss its relations to other phenomenological as well as the more general microscopic approaches is the second major aim of this article. It turns out that for many purposes the HD provides a very useful interpretation scheme, which allows a qualitative understanding of the underlying physics without requiring a complicated theoretical and numerical machinery. [...]

The second half of this book sets out several more sophisticated treatments of the response of a single metal surface to electromagnetic radiation. The relations between general forms of the response functions and additional boundary conditions are discussed for a variety of phenomenological models, the HD, the specular reflection model, the "dielectric approximation", the "semi-classical infinite barrier" model and several others. Also, microscopic surface response calculations based on a quantum mechanical model containing a surface potential for the electrons are presented and their relationships to the HD and the SCIB model are illustrated. Finally, we deal with two surface response functions d±(m) and dll(m), which contain the integrated effect of spatial dispersion and surface properties on measurable quantities such as reflection coefficient or surface plasmon dispersion. Their relation to measurements as well as to microscopic or phenomenological response calculations is discussed."--Pages v-vi.
