Abstract
A parallel graphene layer pair arranged in an antisymmetric configuration coupled through a cavity resonator is proposed and analyzed by the analytical method and the numerical finite-difference time-domain method. The structure operates as a bandpass filter in the midinfrared region. The feature, as the result of the wavelength selective property of the cavity resonator, can be tuned by varying the length of the resonator, the lateral coupling distance between the graphene layers, the dielectric refractive index of material inside the resonator, and, the most interesting, the chemical potential of the graphene layers. The proposed structure can be promoted to power splitters and refractive index sensors by proper designs. Various power division ratios can be realized by changing the relative positions and/or the chemical potentials of the output waveguides. The investigated components can be utilized in the design of midinfrared nanoscale photonic integrated circuits.
