Graphene plasmonics is a rapidly developing field of study. In this talk, I will discuss what makes graphene such an attractive material for plasmons. Following this, I will show and describe experimental results of real-space plasmon imaging using near- field microscopy. I will focus on two types of geometries: half-planes and triangular flakes. Theoretical basis to describe the results will be provided. Finally, I will talk about the effect that grain boudaries and line defects have on plasmons.
