The planar interface of a metal and a dielectric material can guide multiple surface-plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves-all of the same frequency, but different phase speed, attenuation rate, and spatial profiles of fields- provided that the dielectric material is periodically nonhomogeneous in the direction normal to the interface. Theoretical and experimental research during the last four years have validated this idea, thereby engendering the research area of surface multiplasmonics.
