THz radiation interacting with epitaxial graphene — •Christian Sorger, Sascha Preu, and Heiko B. Weber — Lehrstuhl für Angewandte Physik, Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, 91058 Erlangen, Germany

We investigate the interaction between terahertz (THz) radiation and periodically doped graphene ribbons. We find a remarkable polarization dependence. The Drude response of graphene can be probed with THz electric fields parallel to the ribbons. This results in a high-pass filter-like behavior with a 3dB-frequency in the THz range. The exact value depends on carrier mobility and carrier concentration. For THz electric field perpendicular to the ribbons we detect rather high transmission as the response is dominated by plasmonic effects. Utilizing the material system epitaxial graphene on silicon carbide (SiC) we show that no lithographic patterning is required to couple light into the two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG). As the interaction strength depends on the geometry of the 2DEG and its electronic properties, respectively, this strategy allows for a characterization of the AC conductivity in epitaxial graphene.
