A directional photon-assisted resonant chiral tunneling through a bilayer graphene barrier is considered. An external electromagnetic field applied to the barrier switches the transparency T in the longitudinal direction from its steady state value T = 0 to the ideal T = 1 at no energy costs. The switch happens because the acfield affects the phase correlation between the electrons and holes inside the graphene barrier, changing the whole angular dependence of the chiral tunneling (directional photoelectric effect). The suggested phenomena can be implemented in relevant experiments and in various sub-millimeter and far-infrared optical electronic devices.
