Graphene as an organic material has attracted special attention due to its electronic and conductive properties. Moreover, its highly conjugated chemical structures and relatively easy modification have allowed varied design and control of targeted properties and applications. In addition, this nanomaterial with pseudo-electromagnetic fields has led to the emergence of photonics, electronics and quantum interactions with their surroundings, generating new properties of materials. This short review aims at discussing many of these studies of new materials based on graphene for light and electronic interactions, conductions and new modes of nonclassical light generation. These new materials and metamaterials are being developed. For this reason, some representative examples from research with potential applications have been shown and discussed, in addition to their incorporation in real advanced devices and miniaturized instrumentation. Accordingly, this special issue entitled “Design and Synthesis of Hybrid Graphene-based Metamaterials” is intended to review the state-of-the-art in this multidisciplinary field.

Keywords: Carbon allotropes, graphene, chemical modifications, hybrid composites, electromagnetic field interactions, enhanced non-classical light, metamaterials.
