Electromagnetic Waves in Quantum Overdense Plasma


We study the conditions for the anomalous transmission of electromagnetic waves through quantum overdense plasma. We show that this anomalous transmission is triggered due to the excitation of surface waves, as was observed in the classical overdense plasma. The conditions for the excitation of surface waves are obtained by studying the dispersion relation within the framework of quantum hydrodynamics. The corresponding consequences at the classical limits are consistent with the previous studies. In comparison with the classical regimes, the quantum dispersion curve exhibits an asymptotic behavior which indicates significant effects, in particular, at large wavelengths. Herein, to create the required evanescent waves, we consider the quantum plasma to be placed between two ordinary prisms and dielectrics. The effects of the main parameters, such as the permittivity of the prisms and dielectrics and the Fermi velocity, on the rate of the transmission and the magnetic field propagation are also evaluated.
