Paper Abstract

We study instability of plasmons in a dual-grating-gate graphene field-effect transistor induced by dc current injection using self-consistent simulations with the Boltzmann equation. With ultimately high-quality graphene where the electron scattering is only limited by acoustic phonons, it is demonstrated that a total growth rate of the plasmon instability, with the terahertz/mid-infrared range of the frequency, can exceed 4 X 1012 s-1 at room temperature, which is an order of magnitude larger than in two-dimensional electron gases based on usual semiconductors. We show that the giant total growth rate originates from cooperative promotion of the so-called Dyakonov-Shur and Ryzhii-Satou-Shur instabilities.
