The theory of optical effects in hydrogenated graphene (graphane) in the terahertz and infrared range is developed, including the analysis of complex conductivity, reflection coefficient for graphane on a substrate and dispersion of surface plasmon-polaritons. The calculations are based on quite simple analytical approximation of graphane band structure in the vicinity of Γ-point and on the modified model of quantum coherence relaxation. Comparison of the obtained theoretical results with… 



Graphene’s cousin: the present and future of graphane

This review article covers the important aspects of graphane including its theoretically predicted structures, properties, fabrication methods, as well as its potential applications.

Control of Graphene's Properties by Reversible Hydrogenation: Evidence for Graphane

This work illustrates the concept of graphene as a robust atomic-scale scaffold on the basis of which new two-dimensional crystals with designed electronic and other properties can be created by attaching other atoms and molecules.

Optical Hall effect and gyrotropy of surface polaritons in Weyl semimetals

Weyl semimetals possess unique electrodynamic properties due to a combination of strongly anisotropic and gyrotropic bulk conductivity, surface conductivity, and surface dipole layer. We explore the

Efficient nonlinear generation of THz plasmons in graphene and topological insulators.

This work presents theoretical studies of the nonlinear difference frequency generation of terahertz surface plasmon modes supported by two-dimensional layers of massless Dirac electrons, which includes graphene and surface states in topological insulators.

Transition-Metal-Atom-Embedded Graphane and Its Spintronic Device Applications

First-principles calculations are implemented to investigate the electronic and magnetic properties of transition-metal (TM)-atom-embedded graphanes. We find that most of the configurations possess

Strain induced lithium functionalized graphane as a high capacity hydrogen storage material

Strain effects on the stability, electronic structure, and hydrogen storage capacity of lithium-doped graphane (CHLi) have been investigated by stateof-the art first principle density functional

Strong charge-transfer excitonic effects and the Bose-Einstein exciton condensate in graphane.

Using first principles many-body theory methods (GW+Bethe-Salpeter equation) we demonstrate that the optical properties of graphane are dominated by localized charge-transfer excitations governed by

Optical properties and electromagnetic modes of Weyl semimetals

We present systematic theoretical studies of both bulk and surface electromagnetic eigenmodes, or polaritons, in Weyl semimetals. We derive the tensors of bulk and surface conductivity taking into

Fermi-Level Dependence of the Chemical Functionalization of Graphene with Benzoyl Peroxide

The dependence of the chemical functionalization of graphene on its Fermi level was investigated based on a heat-initiated solid-phase chemical reaction with benzoyl peroxide. The chemical

Direct observation of a widely tunable bandgap in bilayer graphene

This work demonstrates a gate-controlled, continuously tunable bandgap of up to 250 meV and suggests novel nanoelectronic and nanophotonic device applications based on graphene that have eluded previous attempts.
