The coexistence behavior of surface magnetoplasmons (SMPs) and bulk magnetoplasmons (BMPs) is discussed on a platform constructed by the Semicondutor-Insulator-Semiconductor (SIS) waveguide with the Voigt configuration magnetization. It is found that the coexistence of SMPs and BMPs stems from the nonzero off-diagonal terms of permittivity tensors of the top and the bottom semiconductor materials (SM) claddings which are induced by the external magnetic field. In this case, the impendence of SM for SMPs contains two contributions associated with both the transversal and the longitudinal wave vectors of SMPs. When the impendence matching condition of SMPs exciting in SIS waveguide is satisfied in the propagating band of BMPs, the coexistence of these two modes thus appears. The results show that the forward-propagating SMPs only coexists with the lower BMPs mode, however, the backward-propagating SMPs coexists with the higher BMPs mode when the top and the bottom SM claddings are magnetized by equal amplitude magnetic field but with opposite direction. In addition, the influences of external-magnetic-field intensity, insulator permittivity and waveguide width on the coexisting frequency widths are also presented.
