Anthony;  I am surprised with our "Nope" answer!!   If you define the k[w]
correctly then you can generate two numerical tables one for
Re[ComplexExpand[k[w]]] and the other one for Im[...] for a range of w
before graph them -  this will ensure the graph process.

define:
r1:=Re[ComplexExpand[[k[w]]]
tr1:=N[Table[r1,{w,0,10}]  (* this will produce a set of real values *)
Plor1=Plot[r1,{w,0,10}];  (* this will plot the r1 function which behaves
linearly *)
You can try the same procedure for the Im part of the k[w].  I graphed the
Re and Im pieces of the k[w] and naturally they worked!!
