Generalized tight-binding transport model for graphene nanoribbon-based systems. Physical Review B. Volume 81, Issue 24. 245402/1-6. ISSN 1550-235X (electronic). DOI:(More)
Graphene nanostructures, where quantum confinement opens an energy gap in the band structure, hold promise for future electronic devices. To realize the full potential of these materials, atomic-scale control over the contacts to graphene and the graphene nanostructure forming the active part of the device is required. The contacts should have a high(More)
Despite the enormous interest in the properties of graphene and the potential of graphene nanostructures in electronic applications, the study of quantum-confined states in atomically well-defined graphene nanostructures remains an experimental challenge. Here, we study graphene quantum dots (GQDs) with well-defined edges in the zigzag direction, grown by(More)
The electronic properties of graphene edges have been predicted to depend on their crystallographic orientation. The so-called zigzag (ZZ) edges haven been extensively explored theoretically and proposed for various electronic applications. However, their experimental study remains challenging due to the difficulty in realizing clean ZZ edges without(More)
