In recent years, we have seen a rapid progress in the field of graphene plasmonics, motivated by graphene's unique electrical and optical properties, tunability, long-lived collective excitation and its extreme light confinement. Here, we review the basic properties of graphene plasmons: their energy dispersion, localization and propagation, plasmon-phonon hybridization, lifetimes and damping pathways. The application space of graphene plasmonics lies in the technologically significant, but… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that in graphene epitaxially grown on SiC the Drude absorption is transformed into a strong terahertz plasmonic peak due to natural nanoscale inhomogeneities, such as substrate terraces and wrinkles, which makes graphene a unique playground for plasMon-controlled magneto-optical phenomena.

Graphene plasmonics for tunable terahertz metamaterials.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that graphene plasmon resonances can be tuned over a broad terahertz frequency range by changing micro-ribbon width and in situ electrostatic doping and the results represent a first look at light-plasmon coupling in graphene and point to potential graphene-based terAhertz metamaterials.

Excitation of plasmonic waves in graphene by guided-mode resonances.
TLDR
The proposed structure is compared with recently demonstrated graphene nanoribbons based on bound plasmonic oscillations and can be used as a highly tunable optical filter or a broad-band modulator because the resonant wavelength can be quickly tuned over a wide wavelength range by a small change in the Fermi energy level of the graphene.
