Reststrahlen Band assisted photocurrents in graphene
Paper i proceeding, 2013

We report on the experimental and theoretical study of the Reststrahlen Band assisted photocurrents in epitaxial grown graphene on SiC. We show that excitation of graphene with infrared radiation results in a dc current. We demonstrate that photocurrent in response to linearly polarized radiation exhibit a resonance enhancement in the frequency range of the Reststrahlen Band of the SiC substrate. By contrast the photocurrent excited by circularly polarized radiation is suppressed in the same spectral range. The developed theory is in agreement with the data and reveals a strong influence of the Reststrahl Band on the high frequency transport in graphene.
