In this paper, we investigate the surface plasma resonance of a slab of left-handed material (LHM). We use the transfer matrix method to calculate the attenuated total reflection spectra of the LHM slab. The intrinsic parameters of the LHM slab are suitable chose so that the slab has both negative permittivity and permeability in a frequency range of visible light. We have calculated the cases with different slab thickness and various dielectrics surrounding the LHM slab.
