Gapless Graphene modulates THz waves

For electronics industry, zero band gap of graphene has been a curse regardless of astonishing carrier mobility and optical transparency. However, gapless graphene seems to be a boon for optical transmission in THz range. This is all because of broadband absorption by graphene. 
Researchers at University of Notre Dame have demostrated an unseen capability of graphene as THz wave modulator.
