Abstract

We report on strong coupling of the charge-carrier plasmon \textgreekwPL in graphene with the surface-optical phonon \textgreekwSO of the underlying SiC(0001) substrate with low-electron concentration (n=1.2$\times$1015 cm$-$3) in the long-wavelength limit (qII->0). Energy-dependent energy-loss spectra give clear evidence of two coupled phonon-plasmon modes \textgreekw$±$ separated by a gap between \textgreekwSO(qII->0) and \textgreekwTO(qII->0), the transverse-optical-phonon mode, in particular, for higher primary electron energies (E0$≥$20 eV). A simplified model based on dielectric theory is able to simulate our energy-loss spectra as well as the dispersion of the two coupled phonon-plasmon modes \textgreekw$±$. In contrast, Liu and Willis Phys. Rev. B 81 081406 (2010) postulate in their recent publication no gap and a discontinuous dispersion curve with a one-peak structure from their energy-loss data.
