High Reflection from a One-Dimensional Array of Graphene Nanoribbons

Abstract : We show that up to 90% reflectivity can be achieved by using guided plasmonic resonances in a one-dimensional periodic array of plasmonic nanoribbon. In general, to achieve strong reflection from a guided resonance system requires one to operate in the strongly overcoupled regime where the radiative decay rate dominates over the intrinsic loss rate of the resonances. Using an argument similar to what has been previously used to derive the Chu-Harrington limit for antennas, we show theoretically that there is no intrinsic limit for the radiative decay rate, even when the system has an atomic scale thickness, in contrast to the existence of such limits on antennas. We also show that the current distribution due to plasmonic resonance can be designed to achieve a very high external radiative rate. Our results show that high reflectivity can be achieved in an atomically thin graphene layer, pointing to a new opportunity for creating atomically thin optical devices.
