ABSTRACT
The propagation of the TE-surface waves on a semibounded quantum plasma is investigated by using the system of generalized quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) model and Maxwell's equations. The dispersion relations for these surface waves on quantum electron plasma in the presence of external magnetic field which is parallel to the wave propagation are derived. The perturbation of electron density and the electric fields of the TE-surface waves are also obtained. However, it was found that quantum effects (Bohm potential and statistical) have no remarkable action on the electric and magnetic field components in the case of unmagnetized plasma. But, it was found that the dispersion relation of surface modes depends significantly on these effects in the case of electrostatic or unmagnetized plasma.
