Abstract: An approximate description of surface waves propagating along periodically grooved surfaces is intuitively developed in the limit where the grooves are narrow relative to the period. Considering acoustic and electromagnetic waves guided by rigid and perfectly conducting gratings, respectively, the wave field is obtained by interrelating elementary approximations obtained in three overlapping spatial domains. Specifically, above the grating and on the scale of the period the grooves are effectively reduced to point resonators characterized by their dimensions as well as the geometry of their apertures. Along with this descriptive physical picture emerges an analytical dispersion relation, which agrees remarkably well with exact calculations and improves on preceding approximations. Scalings and explicit formulas are obtained by simplifying the theory in three distinguished propagation regimes, namely where the Bloch wave number is respectively smaller than, close to, or larger than that corresponding to a groove resonance. Of particular interest is the latter regime where the field within the grooves is resonantly enhanced and the field above the grating is maximally localized, attenuating on a length scale comparable with the period.
