For nanocomposite and photonic crystal interface a complete theoretic study of optical Tamm state is presented. The nanocomposite consists of prolate metallic nanoparticles dispersed in a transparent matrix. It is characterized by resonant effective permittivity; whereas the optical properties of the initial materials have no resonant features. The nanocomposite anisotropy optimizes Tamm state localization and makes the photonic band gap wider.
