Valuable insight into the influence of scattering from impurities on the peculiar electronic properties of graphene are gained by a systematic study of how its conductivity changes with increasing concentration of potassium ions deposited on its surface. 

Role of graphene/substrate interface on the local transport properties of the two-dimensional electron gas

The electron mean free path (l(gr)) is "locally" evaluated by scanning capacitance spectroscopy on graphene obtained with different preparation methods and on different substrates, i.e., graphene e

Correlated charged impurity scattering in graphene.

Impurity correlations offer a self-consistent explanation to the puzzling sublinear carrier-density dependence of conductivity commonly observed in monolayer graphene samples on substrates.

We review the transport properties of graphene, considering both the case of bulk graphene and that of nanoribbons of this material at zero magnetic field. We discuss: Klein tunneling, transport by

Mapping Dirac quasiparticles near a single Coulomb impurity on graphene

In metals, the Coulomb potential of charged impurities is strongly screened, but in graphene, the potential charge of a few-atom cluster of cobalt can extend up to 10 nm. By measuring differences in

Ion irradiation induced structural and electrical transition in graphene.

The relationship between the electrical properties and structure evolution of single layer graphene was studied by gradually introducing the gallium ion irradiation to show a controllable method to tune the properties of graphene.

We study the mobility and high field velocity in graphene placed upon various substrates, such as BN, SiC, or SiO2. The transport is subject to the intrinsic phonons in graphene, as well as flexural

The nature of localization in graphene under quantum Hall conditions

The effect of disorder in conventional two-dimensional electron systems is usually described in terms of individual electrons interacting with an underlying disorder potential. Scanning



Numbers of donors and acceptors from transport measurements in graphene

A method is suggested to separately determine the surface density of positively and negatively charged impurities that limit the mobility in a graphene monolayer. The method is based on the exact

The static polarization function is calculated in two-dimensional graphite and used for the calculation of the conductivity limited by charged-impurity scattering. The conductivity increases in

Temperature dependent electron transport in graphene

Abstract. We have investigated the electron transport in graphene at different carrier densities. Single layer graphene was fabricated into Hall bar shaped devices by mechanical extraction onto a

Electron scattering on microscopic corrugations in graphene

It is shown that certain types of ripples create a long-range scattering potential, similar to Coulomb scatterers, and result in charge-carrier mobility practically independent of carrier concentration, in agreement with experimental observations.

Robust transport properties in graphene.

A robust minimal conductivity that is independent of disorder is found using the Kubo formalism for two-dimensional Dirac fermions in graphene.

Graphene as an electronic membrane

We investigate the membrane aspect of graphene and its impact on the electronic properties. We show that rippling generates spatially varying electrochemical potential that is proportional to the

Minimum electrical and thermal conductivity of graphene: a quasiclassical approach.

This work investigates the minimum conductivity of graphene within a quasiclassical approach taking into account electron-hole coherence effects which stem from the chiral nature of low energy excitations and studies both the electrical and the thermal conductivity whose relation satisfies the Wiedemann-Franz law.

Transport in chemically doped graphene in the presence of adsorbed molecules

Motivated by a recent experiment reporting on the possible application of graphene as sensors, we calculate transport properties of two-dimensional graphene monolayers in the presence of adsorbed

Scattering and Interference in Epitaxial Graphene

It is shown that, when its source is atomic-scale lattice defects, wave functions of different symmetries can mix and reflect both intravalley and intervalley scattering.
