|Abstract(s):||We theoretically predict several plasmonic eﬀects that arise when a monolayer of small polarisable particles is deposited on graphene, related to surface plasmon-polaritons (SPPs) supported by the latter in the terahertz (THz) spectral range. The electromagnetic coupling between graphene SPPs and dipole moments of the nanoparticles (NPs) gives rise to optical properties that are not present in the individual components of this system. The polarisation characteristics of the particles are modiﬁed, namely: (i) individual NP’s polarisability is renormalized and (ii) their dipole-dipole interaction includes, beyond the usual ∝ ρ−3 term (ρ is the particleparticle distance), an indirect particle-particle coupling arises via polarisation charges induced on the graphenecovered interface by each particle – this indirect coupling oscillates with the interparticle distance. We derived coupled-dipole equations taking into account all these eﬀects, allowing us to calculate an eﬀective optical conductivity of the particles’ monolayer and study the optical properties of the composite (G+NPs) system. One of the G+NPs system’s unique features is a collective resonant mode, causing a considerable enhancement of the THz radiation absorption in graphene, while the reﬂection drops to nearly zero for a broad range of angles of incidence. The frequency of this resonant mode can be adjusted by changing the Fermi energy in graphene via electrostatic gating and therefore it can be used for electrically controlled reﬂection and transmission of THz radiation. Another remarkable ﬁnding is that the composite layer supports s-polarised surface polaritons linked to Drude plasmons in graphene.|
