When electrons are confined in two-dimensional materials, quantum-mechanically enhanced transport phenomena such as the quantum Hall effect can be observed. Graphene, consisting of an isolated single atomic layer of graphite, is an ideal realization of such a two-dimensional system. However, its behaviour is expected to differ markedly from the well-studied case of quantum wells in conventional semiconductor interfaces. This difference arises from the unique electronic properties of graphene… Expand
Fractional quantum Hall effect and insulating phase of Dirac electrons in graphene
The quintessential collective quantum behaviour in two dimensions, the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE), has so far resisted observation in graphene despite intense efforts and theoretical predictions of its existence and it is believed that these results will open the door to the physics of FQHE and other collective behaviour in graphene.

Bipolar supercurrent in graphene
Light is shed on the special role of time reversal symmetry in graphene, and phase coherent electronic transport at the Dirac point is demonstrated, finding that not only the normal state conductance of graphene is finite, but also a finite supercurrent can flow at zero charge density. Expand

A topological Dirac insulator in a quantum spin Hall phase
The direct observation of massive Dirac particles in the bulk of Bi0.9Sb0.1 is reported, which suggests that the observed surface state on the boundary of the bulk insulator is a realization of the ‘topological metal’, which has potential application in developing next-generation quantum computing devices that may incorporate ‘light-like’ bulk carriers and spin-textured surface currents.

Quantum spin Hall effect in graphene.
Graphene is converted from an ideal two-dimensional semimetallic state to a quantum spin Hall insulator and the spin and charge conductances in these edge states are calculated and the effects of temperature, chemical potential, Rashba coupling, disorder, and symmetry breaking fields are discussed. Expand
Unconventional integer quantum Hall effect in graphene.
It is demonstrated that monolayer graphite films have quasiparticle excitations that can be described by (2+1)-dimensional Dirac theory, which produces an unconventional form of the quantized Hall conductivity sigma(xy) = -(2e2/h)(2n+1) with n = 0, 1, ..., which notably distinguishes graphene from other materials where the integer quantum Hall effect was observed.

A two-dimensional condensed-matter lattice model is presented which exhibits a nonzero quantization of the Hall conductance in the absence of an external magnetic field, and exhibits the so-called "parity anomaly" of (2+1)-dimensional field theories. Expand
