The work undertaken in this article concerns the description of the propagation modes of an incident
electromagnetic wave of wavelength λ (the visible spectrum) to its interaction with a structure typical metal
/ dielectric. The study of this interaction process is the measurement of features that are four parameters
associated with longitudinal modes propagating interface. A comparative study between two structures
silver and copper has been established. The characteristic parameters whose behavior is studied in the
visible spectrum are the propagation length, and the length of penetration in rural and dielectric material.
The typical structure of Kretschmann-Raether being used for the diagnosis of structure, analytical study
shows that copper can be used as a guide for photonic transmission. The direction of propagation, the
electromagnetic field associated with the interface modes present evanescent spatial coherence with which
the behavior is justified by a study of the near field. For this, we have given some results on the density of
states of plasmonic modes on a copper-air interface.
