  1. Abstract

    We examine the characteristics of the microwave/mm-wave/terahertz radiation-induced magnetoresistance oscillations in monolayer and bilayer graphene and report that the oscillation frequency of the radiation-induced magnetoresistance oscillations in the massless, linearly dispersed monolayer graphene system should depend strongly both on the Fermi energy, and the radiation frequency, unlike in the case of the massive, parabolic, GaAs/AlGaAs 2D electron system, where the radiation-induced magnetoresistance oscillation frequency depends mainly on the radiation frequency. This possible dependence of the magnetoresistance oscillation frequency on the Fermi level at a fixed radiation frequency also suggests a sensitivity to the gate voltage in gated graphene, which suggests anin-situtunable photo-excitation response in monolayer graphene that could be useful for sensing applications. In sharp contrast to monolayer graphene, bilayer graphene is expected to show radiation-induced magnetoresistance oscillations more similar to the results observed in the GaAs/AlGaAs 2D system. Such expectations for the radiation-induced magnetoresistance oscillations are presented here to guide future experimental studies in both of these modern atomic layer material systems.

  2. ABSTRACT We examined the influence of the microwave power on the diagonal resistance in the GaAs/AlGaAs two dimensional electron system (2DES), in order to extract the electron temperature and determine microwave induced heating as a function of the microwave power. The study shows that microwaves produce a small discernable increase in the electron temperature both at null magnetic field and at finite magnetic fields in the GaAs/AlGaAs 2DES. The heating effect at null field appears greater in comparison to the examined finite field interval, although the increase in the electron temperature in the zero-field limit appears smaller than theoretical predictions.
