The recent discovery of natural biaxial hyperbolicity in van der Waals crystals, such as α-MoO3, has opened up new avenues for nanophotonics due to their deep subwavelength phonon-polaritons. However, a significant challenge is the lack of active tunability of these hyperbolic phonon polaritons. In this work, we investigate heterostructures of graphene and α-MoO3 for actively tunable hybrid plasmon phonon polariton modes via electrostatic gating in the mid-infrared spectral region. We observe a…

Tunable Light-Matter Interaction and the Role of Hyperbolicity in Graphene-hBN System.
It is found that the graphene plasmon couples differently with the phonons of the two Reststrahlen bands, owing to their different hyperbolicity, which leads to distinctively different interaction between an external quantum emitter and the plAsmon-phonon modes in the two bands.

Mid infrared polarization engineering via sub-wavelength biaxial hyperbolic van der Waals crystals
V2O5 has been shown to possess the unique phenomenon of natural in-plane biaxial hyperbolicity in the mid-infrared frequency regime at room temperature and is reported a unique application for designing highly efficient, lithography free and extremely subwavelength mid-IR photonic devices for polarization engineering.
Nanophotonic biosensors harnessing van der Waals materials
Basic sensing principles based on vdW materials are discussed, followed by technological challenges such as surface chemistry, integration, and toxicity, and progress in harnessing vdw materials to demonstrate new sensing functionalities that are difficult to perform with conventional metal/dielectric sensors is highlighted.
Planar refraction and lensing of highly confined polaritons in anisotropic media
