Abstract:

Graphene is a potential candidate for integrated carbon-based photonics. Its unique combination of mechanical, electrical, and optical properties gives it several advantages in photonic applications. Graphenes physical properties encompass large-area epitaxial monolayer growth, low-dimensional relativistic massless carriers, and universal optical conductivity from the visible to the infrared, to name a few. The object of this report is to provide a basic understanding of graphene and its use in photonic devices, covering the areas of photodetection, optical modulation, optical polarization, plasmonics, and nonlinear optical properties and devices.
