Visible plasmons in ultra-corrugated graphene

In our recent paper published in Nature Nanotechnology, we show that the plasmon frequencies of graphene can be tuned from terahertz frequencies into the visible range. This enables extremely sensitive detection of molecules from femtomolar concentrations by Raman spectroscopy.

Our paper on Pt2HgSe3 has been published in Nano Letters

Pt2HgSe3 is a layered, van der Waals mineral, called jacutingaite. It was discovered in 2008 in Brazil [1] and the monolayer has been predicted to be a large gap topological insulator [2]. Our group has been able to detect signatures of the predicted topological edge states, within a bulk gap that is larger than 100 […]
