The interaction between graphene surface plasmons and a semiconductor quantum well has been investigated by means of scattering matrix simulations. Due to the strong confinement factor of the graphene layer, a large Rabi splitting arises from the interaction with intersubband transitions. By varying the Fermi energy in the graphene and the doping in the quantum well, the resulting polariton states show features of strong and ultra-strong coupling. The system has been modeled with the coupled-mode theory to find the highest quality factor for the polariton resonance, reaching a “highly resolved” ultra-strong coupling regime.
