This is a book about graphene plasmonics, oriented mainly to the theoretical aspects of graphene plasmonic excitation and propagation in various optical structures. The book is well written. Additionally, various calculations can easily be understood by undergraduates. The computations accompany beautiful color figures, which help to make the book attractive.
The book has ten chapters that can be divided into two main parts. The first part of the book is introductory, dealing with electromagnetic properties of solids, surface plasmons and polaritons and graphene plasmonics. The second part of the book covers graphene plasmons and their excitation using metallic antennas, periodic structures, gratings and dipoles. The book is recommended for all who want to understand the booming area of plasmonics and graphene optoelectronics.
