Abstract-Terahertz tunable graphene Fano resonance
, , and
By depositing graphene circular double rings (DR) on a SiO/Si/polymer substrate, the tunable Fano resonance has been theoretically investigated in the terahertz regime, including the effects of the graphene Fermi level, structural parameters and operation frequency. The results demonstrate that the obvious Fano peak can be efficiently modulated because of strong coupling between the incident waves and graphene ribbons. As the Fermi level increases, the peak amplitude of the Fano curve increases, and the resonant peak position shifts to a high frequency. The amplitude modulation depth of the Fano curves is about 30% if the Fermi level changes in the scope of 0.1–1.0 eV. The optimum gap distance between the DR is about 8–12 μm, where the value of the figure of merit shows a peak. The results are very helpful in order to develop novel graphene plasmonic devices, e.g. sensors and modulators.
