We study the energy levels of graphene magnetic circular quantum dot surrounded by an infinite graphene sheet in the presence of an electrostatic potential. We solve Dirac equation to derive the solutions of energy spectrum associated with different regions composing our system. Using the continuum model and applying boundary conditions at the interface, we obtain analytical results for the energy levels. The dependence of the energy levels on the quantum dot radius, magnetic field and…

Magnetic confinement of massless Dirac fermions in graphene.
It is shown that it is possible to confine massless Dirac fermions in a monolayer graphene sheet by inhomogeneous magnetic fields, which allows one to design mesoscopic structures in graphene by magnetic barriers, e.g., quantum dots or quantum point contacts.
