Abstract

Light propagation in a Bragg periodic structure containing thin films with metallic nanoparticles is studied. The plasmonic resonance frequency, Bragg frequency, and the light carrier frequency are assumed to be close. Exact solutions describing solitary gap-waves are found, and a light arrest phenomenon due to the nonlinearity of plasmonic oscillations is studied.
