A normalized admittance diagram assists in describing and designing multilayered structures to excite long-range surface-plasmon-polariton (LRSPP) waves of either the p- or the s-polarization state. These structures comprise symmetric periodic multilayers on one or both sides of a metal thin film in either the Kretschmann or the Sarid configuration. The normalized admittance diagram even assists in designing structures that can be used to excite LRSPP waves of both polarization states simultaneously.
