Abstract The temperature dependence of the resistance in trilayer graphene is observed under different applied gate voltages. At small gate voltages the resistance decreases with increasing temperature due to the increase in carrier concentration resulting from thermal excitation of electron-hole pairs, characteristic of a semimetal. At large gate voltages excitation of electron-hole pairs is suppressed, and the resistance increases with increasing temperature because of the enhanced electron… 
Maximum-entropy principle for ac and dc dynamic high-field transport in monolayer graphene
Using the maximum entropy principle, we present a general theory to describe ac and dc high-field transport in monolayer graphene within a dynamical context. Accordingly, we construct a closed set of
Theoretical Studies of Structural, Electronic and Optical Properties of Graphene Based Systems
The equilibrium atomic geometry, electronic properties, electronic orbital states, and optical properties of graphene and graphene based systems have been comprehensively investigated using the
Influence of an applied current on the vortex matter in a superconducting sample with structural defects
An exponential dependence of the current in which the first vortex penetrates the sample J→c is found as a function of the area of a square central defect in the sample.


Observation of electron–hole puddles in graphene using a scanning single-electron transistor
The electronic structure of graphene causes its charge carriers to behave like relativistic particles. For a perfect graphene sheet free from impurities and disorder, the Fermi energy lies at the
Determination of the electronic structure of bilayer graphene from infrared spectroscopy
We present an experimental study of the infrared conductivity, transmission, and reflection of a gated bilayer graphene and their theoretical analysis within the Slonczewski-Weiss-McClure (SWMc)
Trilayer graphene is a semimetal with a gate-tunable band overlap
It is found that trilayer graphene is a semimetal with a resistivity that decreases with increasing electric field, a behaviour that is markedly different from that of single-layer and bilayer graphene.
Giant intrinsic carrier mobilities in graphene and its bilayer.
Measurements show that mobilities higher than 200 000 cm2/V s are achievable, if extrinsic disorder is eliminated and a sharp (thresholdlike) increase in resistivity observed above approximately 200 K is unexpected but can qualitatively be understood within a model of a rippled graphene sheet in which scattering occurs on intraripple flexural phonons.
Electronic transport in two-dimensional graphene
We provide a broad review of fundamental electronic properties of two-dimensional graphene with the emphasis on density and temperature dependent carrier transport in doped or gated graphene
Gate-induced interlayer asymmetry in ABA-stacked trilayer graphene.
We calculate the electronic band structure of ABA-stacked trilayer graphene in the presence of external gates, using a self-consistent Hartree approximation to take account of screening. In the
Electronic properties of graphene multilayers.
It is shown that the quasiparticle decay rate has a minimum as a function of energy, there is a universal minimum value for the in-plane conductivity of order e(2)/h per plane and, unexpectedly, the c-axis conductivity is enhanced by disorder at low doping, leading to an enormous conductivity anisotropy at low temperatures.
Insulating behavior in metallic bilayer graphene: Interplay between density inhomogeneity and temperature
We investigate bilayer graphene transport in the presence of electron-hole puddles induced by long-range charged impurities in the environment. We explain the insulating behavior observed in the
The electronic properties of graphene
This article reviews the basic theoretical aspects of graphene, a one-atom-thick allotrope of carbon, with unusual two-dimensional Dirac-like electronic excitations. The Dirac electrons can be
STB Model and Transport Properties of Pyrolytic Graphites
We propose to demonstrate that a coherent description of pyrolytic graphite (PG) layer‐plane phenomena can be based on a parabolic two‐band system with cylindrical equal‐energy surfaces. In this
