Total Conversion of Terahertz Wave Polarization by Graphene Microribbon Array without Magnetic Field

Abstract

The polarization conversion of terahertz radiation by the periodic array of graphene microribbons located at the surface of a high-refractiveindex dielectric substrate (prizm) is studied theoretically. Polarization conversion at the plasmon resonance frequencies takes place without applying external DC magnetic field. It is shown that giant (up to total) polarization conversion can be reached at the total internal reflection of THz wave from the periodic array of graphene nanoribbons.
