Abstract

Herein we study theoretically surface plasmon polariton (SPP) wave propagation along the nanostructured graphene-based metamaterial/corrugated metal interface. We apply the effective medium approximation formalism aiming to physically model nanostructured metamaterial. The transfer matrix approach is applied to compute the dispersion relationship for SPP waves. It has been concluded that the groove width (a) and the chemical potential (µ) parameters have a dramatical impact aiming to engineer resonance surface plasmon frequencies of the propagation modes. Moreover, one can tune the bandgap corresponding to non-propagation regime by modifying groove width parameter. The impact of the groove width (a) and the chemical potential (µ) on the propagation length was investigated. The present work may have potential applications in optical sensing in terahertz frequency range.
