Abstract

The intense and highly tunable optical field enhancement provided by nanomaterials supporting plasmon resonances has diverse applications including biophotonics, terahertz spectroscopy, and subwavelength microscopy. This chapter compares plasmon resonance behavior and tunability in noble metal nanostructures with that of two dimensional and quasi-two dimensional materials including graphene, silicene, germanene, and the transition metal dichalcogenides. Plasmonic optical behavior and related advancements in two-dimensional materials functionalized by metallic nanostructures are discussed. Finally, possibilities for new directions for work on similar composite plasmonic systems are outlined.
