Electrons in single atomic layer of crystals of graphene possess a new degree of freedom for designing nonlinear and optoelectronic devices. Zero bandgap of graphene leads to dominating metallic behavior for carrier conduction and broadband light absorption. The limited density of states in graphene also leads to semiconductor-like behavior, such as Pauli blocking and absorption saturation. In this talk, we will be focusing on using integrated nanophotonic devices to confine and localize photon for enhanced light-matter interaction in subwavelength scale.
