Many-particle effects in the cyclotron resonance of encapsulated monolayer graphene.

Erik A. Henriksen, B. Jordan Russell, K. Watanabe, T. Taniguchi, Boyi Zhou

We study the infrared cyclotron resonance of high mobility monolayer graphene encapsulated in hexagonal boron nitride, and simultaneously observe several narrow resonance lines due to interband Landau level transitions. By holding the magnetic field strength, $B$, constant while tuning the carrier density, $n$, we find the transition energies show a pronounced non-monotonic dependence on the Landau level filling factor, $\nu\propto n/B$. This constitutes direct evidence that electron-electron interactions contribute to the Landau level transition energies in graphene, beyond the single-particle picture. Additionally, a splitting occurs in transitions to or from the lowest Landau level, which is interpreted as a Dirac mass arising from coupling of the graphene and boron nitride lattices.
