Abstract(s)[Excerpt] Over the last few years, graphene plasmonics has emerged as a new research topic, positioned at the interface between condensed matter physics and photonics. This still young but rapidly growing field, resulting from the overlap between graphene physics and plasmonics, deals with the investigation and exploration of graphene surface plasmon-polaritons (GSPs) for controlling light-matter interactions and manipulating light at the nanoscale. In 2011, experimental research in plasmonics in graphene was in its infancy. Some theoretical papers had already been written, but the field was awaiting for some sort of experimental boost. In 2011 a seminal experimental paper (to be discussed in Section 7.1) emerged, demonstrating that plasmonic effects in graphene could be controlled optically, by shining electromagnetic radiation onto a periodic grid of graphene micro-ribbons. This opened a new avenue in graphene physics, launching the new flourishing field of graphene plasmonics. Since then, the field has been witnessing enormous developments at a rapid pace (to be described in Section 1.2). This is a book on plasmonics in graphene. It grew out of the authors’ own interest in the field. Many of the topics covered here refer to problems that were amongst the first to appear in the scientific literature, to which one of the authors has contributed to some extent. Throughout this monograph we have tried to make this book as self-contained as possible, and to provide substantial detail in all derivations. Indeed, with a pencil, some sheets of paper, a dose of enthusiasm, and, at times, a bit of effort, the interested reader should find it easy to reproduce all the results in the book (the Appendices will be most useful for such endeavor). Therefore, we hope that this book will serve as a springboard for any newcomer in graphene plasmonics. Hopefully, the advanced researcher may also find reasons to keep this book in her/his shelf and to recommend it to her/his students. This is also a book about theoretical techniques to deal with plasmonics in graphene. Many of these techniques have been applied to metal plasmonics before and have been adapted here to tackle plasmonic effects in graphene. The main difference is that metals are described by a complex dielectric function, whereas graphene is described by its complex (non-local whenever necessary) optical conductivity and its sheet (two-dimensional) current.
