Abstract-Nonlinear dynamics in a terahertz-driven double-layer graphene diode
Wei Feng, Lijuan Shi,
By using the time-dependent hydrodynamic equations, we carry out a theoretical study of nonlinear dynamics in an nnn double-layer graphene diode driven by terahertz radiation. A cooperative nonlinear oscillatory mode shows up due to the negative differential conductance effect. We use different chaos-detecting methods, such as the Poincaré bifurcation diagram and the first return map, to examine the transitions between the periodic and chaotic states. The double-layer graphene diode shows typical nonlinear dynamical behavior with the DC bias, AC amplitudes and the AC frequency as the control parameters.
