The present letter demonstrates that a leaky pseudo surface wave (LPSW) should exist on the interface of water and a cubic crystal silicon (110) plane. The phase velocity distribution of the LPSW on the above interface has been theoretically predicted by the reflection coefficient analysis and experimentally measured by using acoustic spectro-microscopy (ASM). The measured phase velocity distribution of the LPSW is in good agreement with the predicted one.
