Plasma resonance in layered normal metals and superconductors

  • S. V. Pokrovsky

A microscopic theory of the plasma resonance in layered metals is presented. It is shown that electron-impurity scattering can suppress the plasma resonance in the normal state and sharpen it in the superconducting state.
