Abstract-Terahertz transverse-electric- and transverse-magnetic-polarized waves localized on graphene in photonic crystals
We predict the coexistence of both transverse-electric- and transverse-magnetic-polarized localized electromagnetic waves that can propagate in the same frequency range along a graphene layer inserted in a photonic crystal. In addition, we studied the excitation of these modes by an external wave and have shown that the resonance peaks of the sample transmissivity should be observed due to the excitation of the localized waves, independently of the polarization of the exciting wave. The simplicity of the derived dispersion relations for the localized modes and the possibility to excite waves of both polarizations provide a method for measuring graphene conductivity.
