We demonstrate the strong coupling of a quantum dot and a graphene spherical shell coating it. Our simulations are based on solutions of three-dimensional Maxwell equations, using a boundary element method approach. Interaction between the nanostructures produces sharp hybrid modes, even when the two are off-resonant. The coupling of the light to these "very sharp" plexcitonic resonances is an order of magnitude larger than its coupling to a quantum dot, and they are voltage tunable (continuously) in an 80-meV interval. Hence, our results are very attractive for sensing applications and graphene display technologies with sharper colors. Moreover, on a simple theoretical model, we explain why such sharp highly tunable hybrid resonances emerge.

KAYA, Emine; Kakenov, Nurbek; Kocabas, Coskun; Altan, Hakan; Esentürk, Okan (2016-09-30)
In this study we present the direct terahertz timedomain spectroscopic measurement of CVD-grown multilayer graphene (MLG) on PVC substrate with an electrically tunable Fermi level. In a configuration consisting MLG and injected organic dopant, the transmitted intensity loss of terahertz radiation was observed with an applied voltage between 0 and 3.5 V.We showed that MLG on PVC devices provided approximately 100 % modulation between 0.2 and 1.5 THz at preferentially low operation voltage of ca. 3V. The obse...

Erkoç, Şakir; Erkoc, F (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-14)
The structural and electronic properties of the thalidomide molecule have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital (AM1) and density functional theory calculations. The geometry of the molecule has been optimized by AM1 method and the electronic properties of the molecule have been calculated by density functional theory in its ground state.

Kakenov, Nurbek; Balci, Osman; Polat, Emre O.; Altan, Hakan; KOCABAŞ, COŞKUN (2015-09-01)
We demonstrate a terahertz intensity modulator using a graphene supercapacitor which consists of two large-area graphene electrodes and an electrolyte medium. The mutual electrolyte gating between the graphene electrodes provides very efficient electrostatic doping with Fermi energies of 1 eV and a charge density of 8 x 10(13) cm(-2). We show that the graphene supercapacitor yields more than 50% modulation between 0.1 and 1.4 THz with operation voltages less than 3 V. The low insertion losses, high modulati...
Electronic properties of open-ended single wall carbon nanotubes
Turker, L; Erkoç, Şakir (2002-01-31)
We have investigated the electrostatic, charge and orbital properties of open-ended single-wall carbon nanotubes in zigzag geometry. The calculations were performed by using the AM1-RHF semiempirical molecular orbital method. It has been found that the tubes with smaller radius behave like a metallic solid whereas the tubes with larger radius behave like a metallic hollow cylinder.
Graphene-enabled electrically controlled terahertz spatial light modulators
Kakenov, Nurbek; Takan, Taylan; ÖZKAN, VEDAT ALİ; Balci, Osman; Polat, Emre O.; Altan, Hakan; KOCABAŞ, COŞKUN (2015-05-01)
In this Letter, we demonstrate a broadband terahertz (THz) spatial light modulator using 5 x 5 arrays of large area graphene supercapacitors. Our approach relies on controlling spatial charge distribution on a passive matrix array of patterned graphene electrodes. By changing the voltage bias applied to the rows and columns, we were able to pattern the THz transmittance through the device with high modulation depth and low operation voltage. We anticipate that the simplicity of the device architecture with ...
