We analyze the evolution of the modes in nanoplasmonic multilayered structures and study the transition of the optical properties
of these systems to the effective-medium regime. We derive the effective-medium parameters and study the validity of our analyt-
ical results with exact numerical solutions of Maxwell equations. Finally, we explore the applications of multilayered systems for
subwavelength light confinement in planar and circular waveguides.
