Graphene is proving to be an efficient medium for the control of mm-wave/THz radiation. Its electrical and dielectric properties allows it to be incorporated into various existing device architectures. One such application is in the modulation of the amplitude of the propagating THz radiation. Due to its electrical properties this interaction is typically broadband in nature. To make this frequency selective we propose the use of metamaterials or frequency selective surfaces. Generally, these structures perform the frequency filtering by modifying the propagation of the input wave with respect to changing structural parameters of the device itself. By fabricating a frequency selective surface based on a periodic circular hole array on an aluminum sheet we show that the transmission of a narrow band of THz radiation can be modulated when the sheet is combined with a highly efficient graphene based supercapacitor device. The modulation depth of the device was 15% in the frequency region of interest. The simple structure of the device coupled with the obtained performance shows that graphene based devices have great potential for the development of THz technologies.

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...

KARAMAT, SHUMAİLA; Celik, K.; Zaman, S. Shah; Oral, Ahmet (Elsevier BV, 2018-06-01)
High quality of graphene is necessary for its applications at industrial scale production. The most convenient way is its direct growth on dielectrics which avoid the transfer route of graphene from metal to dielectric substrate usually followed by graphene community. The choice of a suitable dielectric for the gate material which can replace silicon dioxide (SiO2) is in high demand. Various properties like permittivity, thermodynamic stability, film morphology, interface quality, bandgap and band alignment...

Understanding of near-field radiative transfer is crucial for many advanced applications such as nanoscale energy harvesting, nano-manufacturing, thermal imaging, and radiative cooling. Near-field radiative transfer has been shown to be dependent on the material and morphological characteristics of systems, the gap distances between structures, and their temperatures. Surface interactions of phononic materials in close proximity of each other has led to promising results for novel near-field radiative trans...

The coupling of plasmonic and mechanical properties at the nanoscale is of great potential for the development of next generation devices capable to detect weak forces, mass changes, minute displacements and temperature induced effects. Both the transduction of mechanical motion to the scattered light fields in term of polarization or intensity modulation and plasmon-driven mechanical oscillations have already been demonstrated. Quasi static tunable hot spots have recently been designed and applied to surfa...

Sabah, Cumali (2018-02-09)
Tunable graphene integrated metamaterial absorber is proposed for energy harvesting and visible light communication. The structure provides unity absorption in the visible spectrum in which it can be used perfect absorber for energy harvesting. In addition, it also provides tunability because of the graphene conductivity to be used as photoconductive or thermal switch for visible light communication.
