Edge magnetoplasmons and the optical excitations in graphene disks
Journal article, 2012

We discuss the edge magnetoplasmon properties in highly doped graphene disks, and the corresponding optical excitations. Edge magnetoplasmons with nonzero angular momentum (l not equal 0) have two branches corresponding to different edge current rotations with respect to the magnetic field. The resonance energies of one branch are blueshifted and the other redshifted relative to energies at B = 0, with the energy differences linearly proportional to the magnetic field. Recently, the l = 1 dipole mode has been investigated by two experiments using optical transmission spectroscopy [Crassee et al., Nano Lett. 12, 2470 (2012); Yan et al., ibid. 12, 3766 (2012)], and classical cyclotron resonances were found in highly doped graphene samples. These are determined by graphene magneto-optical conductivities, which behave like a conventional two-dimensional electron system in the high doping limit.
