Guided Plasmon Modes of a Graphene-Coated Kerr Slab
(SPRINGER, 233 SPRING ST, NEW YORK, NY 10013 USA, 2016)
We study analytically propagating surface plasmon modes of a Kerr slab sandwiched between two graphene layers. We show that some of the modes that propagate forward at low field intensities start propagating with negative ...
Enhanced tunability of V-shaped plasmonic structures using ionic liquid gating and graphene
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, THE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2016)
Graphene is a strong candidate for active optoelectronic devices because of its electrostatically tunable optical response. Current substrate back-gating methods are unable to sustain high fields through graphene unless a ...
Enhanced transmission and beaming via a zero-index photonic crystal
(AMER INST PHYSICS, 1305 WALT WHITMAN RD, STE 300, MELVILLE, NY 11747-4501 USA, 2016)
Certain types of photonic crystals with Dirac cones at the Gamma point of their band structure have a zero effective index of refraction at Dirac cone frequency. Here, by an appropriate design of the photonic structure, ...
Role of epsilon-near-zero substrates in the optical response of plasmonic antennas
(OPTICAL SOC AMER, 2010 MASSACHUSETTS AVE NW, WASHINGTON, DC 20036 USA, 2016)
Radiation patterns and the resonance wavelength of a plasmonic antenna are significantly influenced by its local environment, particularly its substrate. Here, we experimentally explore the role of dispersive substrates, ...
