Abstract

We investigate the tuning of the coupling of surface plasmon polaritons between two spatially separated graphene layers. We demonstrate that by slightly changing the chemical potential, a graphene coupler can switch from the bar to the cross state; as a consequence, the coupling coefficient in such structures can be easily controlled by means of an applied electrical signal.
