Combined effect of doping and temperature on the anisotropy of low-energy plasmons in monolayer graphene

Combined effect of doping and temperature on the anisotropy of low-energy plasmons in monolayer... We compare the two-dimensional (2D) plasmon dispersion relations for monolayer graphene when the sample is doped with carriers in the conduction band and the temperature T is zero with the case when the temperature is finite and there is no doping. Additionally, we have obtained the plasmon excitations when there is doping at finite temperature. The results were obtained in the random-phase approximation which employs energy electronic bands calculated using ab initio density functional theory. We found that in the undoped case the finite temperature results in appearance in the low-energy region of a 2D plasmon which is absent for the T=0 case. Its energy is gradually increased with increasing T. It is accompanied by expansion in the momentum range where this mode is observed as well. The 2D plasmon dispersion in the ΓM direction may differ in substantial ways from that along the ΓK direction at sufficiently high temperature and doping concentrations. Moreover, at temperatures exceeding ≈300 meV a second mode emerges along the ΓK direction at lower energies like it occurs at a doping level exceeding ≈300 meV. Once the temperature exceeds ≈0.75 eV this mode ceases to exist whereas the 2D plasmon exists as a well-defined collective excitation up to T=1.5eV, a maximal temperature investigated in this work. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review B American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

We compare the two-dimensional (2D) plasmon dispersion relations for monolayer graphene when the sample is doped with carriers in the conduction band and the temperature T is zero with the case when the temperature is finite and there is no doping. Additionally, we have obtained the plasmon excitations when there is doping at finite temperature. The results were obtained in the random-phase approximation which employs energy electronic bands calculated using ab initio density functional theory. We found that in the undoped case the finite temperature results in appearance in the low-energy region of a 2D plasmon which is absent for the T=0 case. Its energy is gradually increased with increasing T. It is accompanied by expansion in the momentum range where this mode is observed as well. The 2D plasmon dispersion in the ΓM direction may differ in substantial ways from that along the ΓK direction at sufficiently high temperature and doping concentrations. Moreover, at temperatures exceeding ≈300 meV a second mode emerges along the ΓK direction at lower energies like it occurs at a doping level exceeding ≈300 meV. Once the temperature exceeds ≈0.75 eV this mode ceases to exist whereas the 2D plasmon exists as a well-defined collective excitation up to T=1.5eV, a maximal temperature investigated in this work.
