In this paper, we calculated the dielectric function, the loss function, the magnetoplasmon dispersion relation and the temperature-induced transitions for graphene in a uniform perpendicular magnetic field B. The calculations were performed using the Peierls tight-binding model to obtain the energy band structure and the random-phase approximation to(More)
The single- and many-particle Coulomb excitation spectra in Bernal bilayer graphene can be modulated by a uniform perpendicular electric field. The field-induced oscillatory parabolic bands possess saddle points and local extrema, which, respectively, lead to logarithmically divergent peaks and discontinuous steps in the bare response functions. Such(More)
The low-frequency magneto-optical properties of bilayer Bernal graphene are studied by the tight-binding model with the four most important interlayer interactions taken into account. Since the main features of the wave functions are well-depicted, the Landau levels can be divided into two groups based on the characteristics of the wave functions. These(More)
A review work is done for the electronic and optical properties of graphene nanoribbons in magnetic, electric, composite, and modulated fields. Effects due to the lateral confinement, curvature, stacking, non-uniform subsystems and hybrid structures are taken into account. The special electronic properties, induced by complex competitions between external(More)
Edge-decorated graphene nanoribbons are investigated with the density functional theory; they reveal three stable geometric structures. The first type is a tubular structure formed by the covalent bonds of decorating boron or nitrogen atoms. The second one consists of curved nanoribbons created by the dipole-dipole interactions between two edges when(More)
The geometric and electronic properties of curved armchair graphene nanoribbons without hydrogen atoms are investigated by first-principles calculations. The edge-atom bond length and ground state energy dramatically vary with the arc angle. The zipping or unzipping requirements for energy, arc angle, and interaction distance depend on the ribbon width. The(More)
This article reviews the rich magneto-electronic properties of multilayer graphene systems. Multilayer graphenes are built from graphene sheets attracting one another by van der Waals forces; the magneto-electronic properties are diversified by the number of layers and the stacking configurations. For an N-layer system, Landau levels are divided into N(More)
The generalized tight-binding model, based on the subenvelope functions of distinct sublattices, is developed to investigate the magnetic quantization in sliding bilayer graphenes. The relative shift of two graphene layers induces a dramatic transformation between the Dirac-cone structure and the parabolic band structure, and thus leads to drastic changes(More)
The geometric and electronic properties of passivated armchair graphene nanoribbons, enriched by strong chemical bonding between edge-carbons and various adatoms, are investigated by first-principle calculations. Adatom arrangements, bond lengths, charge distributions, and energy dispersions are dramatically changed by edge passivation. Elements with an(More)
We predict the existence of low-frequency nonlocal plasmons at the vacuum-surface interface of a superlattice of N graphene layers interacting with conducting substrate. We derive a dispersion function that incorporates the polarization function of both the graphene monolayers and the semi-infinite electron liquid at whose surface the electrons scatter(More)
