Abstract

A strong and dynamically controlled circular dichroism (CD) effect has aroused great attention due to its desirable applications in modern chemistry and life sciences. In this Letter, we propose a graphene–metal hybrid chiral metamaterial to generate mid-infrared CD with an intensity of more than 10%, which can be actively controlled over a wide wavelength range. In addition to the strong tunability, the CD signal intensity of our nanostructure is drastically larger than that of the purely graphene-based chiroptical nanostructures. Our design offers a new strategy for developing tunable chiral metadevices, which could be used in various applications, such as biochemical detection and information processing.
