Abstract

Graphene-assisted resonant transmission and enhanced Goos–Hänchen shift are investigated in a two-prism frustrated total internal reflection configuration. Due to the excitation of surface plasmons induced by graphene in a low terahertz frequency range, there exist the resonant transmission and anomalous Goos–Hänchen shifts in such an optical tunneling configuration. As compared to the case of the quantum well, a graphene sheet with unique optical properties can enhance the resonant transmission with a relatively low loss and modulate the large negative and positive Goos–Hänchen shifts by adjusting the chemical potential or electron relaxation time. These intriguing phenomena may lead to some potential applications in graphene-based electro-optic devices.
