Abstract: The theory, and the use at normal incidence, of shear-vertically polarized waves (with polarization vector in the plane containing the incident wave vector and the normal on the interface) using the mode conversion method has been tackled by others. Here we develop the theory for shear-horizontally polarized incident waves (with polarization vector perpendicular to both the normal on the interface and the incoming wave vector). We take into account normal incidence as well as oblique incidence. For normal incidence, we discover the generation of Love waves. If oblique incidence is considered, we discover the existence of a Brewster angle of incidence, comparable with the Brewster angle in optics, in which a diffraction grating can be used as a polarization filter.
