Electronic screening renormalizes the linear bands of graphene and in the vicinity of the Dirac point, creates a diamond shaped structure in the quasiparticle spectral density. This is a result of electron-plasmon scattering processes which produce a finite momentum feature referred to as the `plasmaron ring'. In this work we explore the effects of uniaxial strain on these spectral features with the aim of understanding how strain modifies correlations. We derive and calculate the spectral… Expand

Intrinsic plasmarons in warm graphene.
It is predicted theoretically that there exist intrinsic plasmarons in graphene at nonzero temperature, with a well defined mode, as shown by the result of Landau damping and there are sharp differences between the discussed system and the QCD/QED system. Expand
Plasmon modes in graphene: status and prospect.
Experimental results provide clues regarding the nature of plasmonic excitations in graphene on metals and semiconductors and intriguing effects due to many-body interaction are reported, such as the excitations generated by electron-electron coupling (magnetoplasmons) and the composite modes arising from the coupling of plasmons with phonons and with charge carriers.

Effect of electron-phonon coupling on energy and density of states renormalizations of dynamically screened graphene
Electronic screening strongly renormalizes the linear bands which occur near the Dirac crossing in graphene. The single bare Dirac crossing is split into two individual Dirac-like points, which areExpand

Observation of Plasmarons in Quasi-Freestanding Doped Graphene
By measuring the spectral function of charge carriers in quasi-freestanding graphene with angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, it is shown that at finite doping, this well-known linear Dirac spectrum does not provide a full description of the charge-carrying excitations. Expand
