Abstract

In this Letter, considering the chiral–graphene–chiral structure, we investigate the more universal dispersion relation covering the achiral cases, the effect of the chirality of a medium, and the chemical potential of graphene on the behavior of graphene surface plasmon polaritons (GSPPs) and transverse spin density, which is key to understanding the lateral optical force. This research is dedicated to looking for a regulating mechanism based on chirality and graphene to apply in devices of information processing and biosensor for identifying molecular chirality. We found the averaging effect of chirality in both sides of graphene in tuning the behavior of GSPPs. We believe this work can make contributions to enrich SPP theory and benefit the development of novel detection techniques for chiral molecules based on graphene.
