Abstract-THz metamaterials and plasmonics using 2D materials & highly conductive transparent oxides

Driven by a myriad of potential applications such as communications, medical imaging, security, spectroscopy, and so on, terahertz (THz) technology has emerged as a rapidly growing technological field during the last three decades. However, since conventional materials typically used in microwave and optical frequencies are lossy or do not effectively respond at these frequencies, it is essential to find or develop novel materials that are suitable for device applications in the THz range. Therefore, there is wide interest in the community in employing novel naturally-occurring materials, such as 2D materials, as well as in designing artificial metamaterial structures for THz applications. Here, we combined both of these approaches so to develop reconfigurable THz devices capable of providing amplitude modulation, phase modulation, and resonance frequency tuning
