Abstract

In this paper, we study propagation of surface waves at a boundary of an amplifying isotropic medium and hyperbolic metamaterial. We demonstrate that the gain material can be used to counterbalance the losses in hyperbolic medium. We show that the gain-loss balance can be maintained even in the presence of nonlinear saturation leading to the surface wave amplification.
