Plasmonic Instabilities in two-dimensional Dirac Materials

Hugo Terças, Instituto de Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

November 11th, 12 CET

The generation of coherent terahertz radiation is an outstanding challenge at both scientific and technological levels. In one hand, the quest for table-top THz solutions based on integrated-circuit technology puts graphene and other bi-dimensional in the run. Plasma instabilities in bi-dimensional materials are an appealing mechanism for the production of low-power coherent THz signals. In this talk, we discuss how to produce plasmonic instabilities based on electronic injection only.
