We review recent discoveries of the intriguing plasmonic phenomena at a variety of electronic boundaries (EBs) in graphene including a line of charges in graphene induced by a carbon nanotube gate, grain boundaries in chemical vapor deposited graphene films, an interface between graphene and moiré patterned graphene, an interface between graphene and bilayer graphene, and others. All these and other EBs cause plasmonic impedance mismatch at the two sides of the boundaries. Manifestations of this effect include plasmonic fringes that stem from plasmon reflections and interference. Quantitative analysis and modeling of these plasmonic fringes uncovered intriguing properties and underlying physics of the EBs. Potential plasmonic applications associated with these EBs are also briefly discussed.
