In this talk, I will discuss macroscopic consequences of the optical conductivity of 2D materials via classical solutions of Maxwell's equations. In this context, the phase of the conductivity plays a key role. I will formally show that: (I) The homogenization of Maxwell's equations for periodic structures made of 2D materials intercalated in conventional dielectrics allows for propagation of waves with nearly no phase delay (epsilon-near-zero behavior).
