Photon helicity driven currents in graphene
Conference contribution, 2010

We report on the observation of photon helicity driven currents in graphene. We demonstrate that by illuminating unbiased monolayer graphene samples with terahertz (THz) laser radiation at room temperature under oblique and normal incidence causes directed electric currents. This includes currents which are solely driven by the light's helicity.
