Waveguide Modes in a Planar Graphene–Dielectric Thin-Layer Structure
Particular features of waveguide propagation of modes in a planar structure that consists of alternating layers of a dielectric and graphene are investigated. Within the effective-medium approximation, dispersion relations are obtained for symmetric and antisymmetric waveguide modes. Based on their numerical analysis, the frequency dependences of the propagation and decay constants, of the group and phase velocities, and of the energy flux carried by waveguide modes are constructed. The influence of the fraction of graphene in the structure on the behavior of waveguide modes is analyzed.
