Mutual rectification of alternating currents in graphene

Induction of direct current in graphene by a pair of electromagnetic waves with different frequencies and mutually perpendicular polarization planes affecting its surface is described by solving the quantum kinetic equation. It is shown that the major contribution to the constant component of the current comes from inelastic scattering of charge carriers.
