Trapping and guiding surface plasmons in curved graphene landscapes

Smirnova, Daria; Mousavi, S. Hossein; Wang, Zheng; Khanikaev, Alexander B.; Kivshar, Yuri


We demonstrate that graphene placed on top of structured substrates offers a novel approach for trapping and guiding surface plasmons. A monolayer graphene with a spatially varying curvature exhibits an effective trapping potential for graphene plasmons near curved areas such as bumps, humps and wells. We derive the governing equation for describing such localized channel plasmons guided by curved graphene and validate our theory by the first-principle numerical simulations. The proposed...[Show more]
