Ab initio quantum transport in polycrystalline graphene.
First-principles simulations are performed to explore charge transport through a GB in PG using the Landauer-Büttiker formalism implemented within the Green's function approach, predicting the transport gap is predicted to be inversely proportional to the smallest significant periodic pattern and nearly independent of the interface configuration.
