We have investigated the properties of structures incorporating graded index materials with parabolic permittivity profile. Surface-plasmon-polaritons at the interface of graded index material and semiconductor are studied by means of numerical simulations. We analyze the dependence of the dispersion characteristics on the graded index material profile as well as on the semiconductor concentration via the finite-difference time-domain simulations. Effects of the structure on dielectric and magnetic properties are taken into account by introducing the Drude model in the semiconductor dispersion.
