We study graphene monolayer charge carriers irradiated by an electromagnetic vortex. From this, two scenarios are envisaged: canonical oscillator coherent states, which form for large particle numbers and from which a sublattice filter can be constructed, and pair-coherent states, which emerge when the carrier velocity is much less than the Fermi velocity and which can exhibit nonclassical properties. The first should be useful in the control (e.g., confinement and guided transport) of graphene electrons, while the second provides a physical system for examining nonclassical properties of wave packets.

    Fifty years ago Hartman studied the barrier transmission time of wave packets (J Appl Phys 33:3427-3433, ). He was inspired by the tunneling experiments across thin insulating layers at that time. For opaque barriers he calculated faster than light propagation and a transmission time independent...

    Light usually propagates inside transparent materials in well known ways. However, recent research has examined the possibility of modifying the way the light travels by taking a normal transparent dielectric and inserting tiny metallic inclusions of various shapes and arrangements. As light...
