We demonstrate vertical graphene-base hot-electron transistors (GB-HETs) with a variety of structures and material parameters. Our GB-HETs exhibit a current saturation with a high current on-off ratio (>10(5)), which results from both the vertical transport of hot electrons across the ultrathin graphene base and the filtering of hot electrons through a(More)
Atomistic quantum transport simulations of a large ensemble of devices are employed to investigate the impact of different sources of disorder on the transport properties of extremely scaled (length of 10 nm and width of 1–4 nm) graphene nanoribbons. We report the dependence of the transport gap, ONand OFF-state conductances, and ON–OFF ratio on edgedefect(More)
Scattering mechanisms in graphene are critical to understanding the limits of signal-to-noise ratios of unsuspended graphene devices. Here we present the four-probe low-frequency noise (1/f) characteristics in back-gated single layer graphene (SLG) and bilayer graphene (BLG) samples. Contrary to the expected noise increase with the resistance, the noise for(More)
Conventional techniques to achieve a constant-gm rail-to-rail complementary N-P differential input stage require complex additional circuitry. In addition, the frequency response and common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) are degraded. An economical but efficient design technique to overcome these problems is proposed. The proposed technique strategically(More)
Oxidation of graphite produces graphite oxide, which is dispersible in water as individual platelets. After deposition onto Si/SiO2 substrates, chemical reduction produces graphene sheets. Electrical conductivity measurements indicate a 10000-fold increase in conductivity after chemical reduction to graphene. Tapping mode atomic force microscopy(More)
Graphene has unique electronic properties, and graphene nanoribbons are of particular interest because they exhibit a conduction bandgap that arises due to size confinement and edge effects. Theoretical studies have suggested that graphene nanoribbons could have interesting magneto-electronic properties, with a very large predicted magnetoresistance. Here,(More)
The formation of MoO(3) sheets of nanoscale thickness is described. They are made from several fundamental sheets of orthorhombic alpha-MoO(3), which can be processed in large quantities via a low cost synthesis route that combines thermal evaporation and mechanical exfoliation. These fundamental sheets consist of double-layers of linked distorted MoO(6)(More)
Thermally induced domain wall motion in a magnetic insulator was observed using spatiotemporally resolved polar magneto-optical Kerr effect microscopy. The following results were found: (i) the domain wall moves towards hot regime; (ii) a threshold temperature gradient (5  K/mm), i.e., a minimal temperature gradient required to induce domain wall motion;(More)
