Investigating the structure of quantized plateaus in the Hall conductance of graphene is a powerful way of probing its crystalline and electronic structure and will also help to establish whether graphene can be used as a robust standard of resistance for quantum metrology. We use low-temperature scanning gate microscopy to image the interplateau breakdown(More)
We propose an efficient numerical method to study the transport properties of armchair graphene ribbons in the presence of a generic external potential. The method is based on a continuum envelope-function description with physical boundary conditions. The envelope functions are computed in the reciprocal space, and the transmission is then obtained with a(More)
We propose a model for the numerical simulation of a two-terminal scanning gate spectroscopy experiment on bilayer graphene in the Quantum Hall regime. We start from the Chalker-Coddington random network model and link the model parameters with some of the relevant quantities in the experimental setup. The comparison between the simulation and the(More)
Research in graphene-based electronics is recently focusing on devices based on vertical heterostructures of two-dimensional materials. Here we use density functional theory and multiscale simulations to investigate the tunneling properties of single- and double-barrier structures with graphene and few-layer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) or hexagonal boron(More)
We compute, using a continuum model based on the Dirac equation, the transverse modes and the longitudinal wave vectors in an armchair ribbon, in the presence of a transversally variable external potential. We show that the application of a standard finite difference method to this problem is not effective, since it can lead to the appearance of spurious(More)
We investigate the intrinsic performance of vertical and lateral graphene-based heterostructure field-effect transistors, currently considered the most promising options to exploit graphene properties in post-CMOS electronics. We focus on three recently proposed graphene-based transistors, that in experiments have exhibited large current modulation. Our(More)
We compare the performance prospects of three recently proposed and demonstrated transistors based on vertical and lateral graphene-based heterostructures, with the requirements of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. All devices provide large Ion/Ioff ratios, but only the lateral heterostructure field-effect transistors exhibit(More)
