This book opens a new avenue to an engendering field of applied physics, located at the “crossing” of modern photonics, electromagnetics, acoustics and material science. It also highlights the concept of “non-locality”, which proves to be not a special feature of quantum phenomena, but is shown to have an important counterpart in classical physics and its engineering applications too. Furthermore, it visualizes the physical results by means of simple analytical presentations, reduced sometimes to the elementary functions.


  • Introduction
  • Non-local Dispersion of Heterogeneous Dielectrics
  • Gradient Photonic Barriers: Generalizations of the Fundamental Model
  • Resonant Tunneling of Light Through Gradient Dielectric Nanobarriers
  • Interaction of Electromagnetic Waves with Continuously Structured Dielectrics
  • Polarization Phenomena in Gradient Nanophotonics
  • Gradient Optics of Guided and Surface Electromagnetic Waves
  • Non-local Acoustic Dispersion of Gradient Solid Layers
  • Shear Acoustic Waves in Gradient Elastic Solids
  • Shear Horizontal Surface Acoustic Waves on Graded Index Media

Readership: For researchers, engineers and designers of communication systems, lecturers and graduate students.
Key Features:

  • It is the first systematic presentation of a newly developing branch of wave physics, containing the series of “hot” results dispersed hitherto in different journals
  • It's the first book, forming the cornerstones of the modern insight on the miniaturized gradient subwavelength structures
  • Moreover, it is the first book bringing together the physical fundamentals and mathematical basis of electromagnetic and acoustic wave processes in gradient metamaterials
