The electronic transport properties of graphene-based superlattice structures are investigated. A graphene-based modulation-doped superlattice structure geometry is proposed consisting of periodically arranged alternate layers: InAs/graphene/GaAs/graphene/GaSb. The undoped graphene/GaAs/graphene structure displays a relatively high conductance and enhanced mobilities at increased temperatures unlike the modulation-doped superlattice structure, which is more steady and less sensitive to… 

Transverse current rectification in a graphene-based superlattice

A model of the energy spectrum of a superlattice based on graphene overlying a substrate of periodically arranged layers of different insulators is proposed. For such a structure, the dc current

Conductance enhancement due to atomic potential fluctuations in graphene

We solve the Dirac equation, which describes charge massless chiral relativistic carriers in a two-dimensional graphene. We have identified and analysed a novel pseudospin-dependent scattering

AbstractWe study spin transport in normal/ferromagnetic/normal/ferromagnetic.../normal graphene superlattices, which can be realized by putting a series of magnetic insulator bars on top of a

Spin confinement in the superlattices of graphene ribbons

Based on first-principles calculations, we showed that repeated heterostructures of zigzag graphene nanoribbons of different widths form multiple quantum well structures. Edge states of specific spin

Thermal transport of isotopic-superlattice graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edge

Thermal transport properties of isotopic-superlattice graphene nanoribbons with zigzag edge (IS-ZGNRs) are investigated. We find that by isotopic superlattice modulation the thermal conductivity of a

Conductance of a disordered graphene superlattice

We study the conductance of disordered graphene superlattices with short-range structural correlations. The system consists of electron- and hole-doped graphenes of various thicknesses, which

Using the transfer matrix method, it is found that the electrostatic barrier, the magnetic vector potential, and the number of wells in a superlattice modify the transmission remarkably.

Charge carrier separation in modulation doped coaxial semiconductor nanowires.

An analysis of the charge density distributions reveals that the electrons and holes are spatially separated in core and outer shell regions, respectively, in conformity with a type-II lineup of band structures.

We report here on a method of fabricating and characterizing highly perfect, periodically rippled graphene monolayers and islands, epitaxially grown on single crystal metallic substrates under

Experimental observation of the quantum Hall effect and Berry's phase in graphene

An experimental investigation of magneto-transport in a high-mobility single layer of graphene observes an unusual half-integer quantum Hall effect for both electron and hole carriers in graphene.

Ambient and temperature dependent electric properties of backgate graphene transistors

The electrical behavior of backgate graphene field effect (GFET) transistor was studied at different ambient conditions. Backgate p‐channel GFET transistors were fabricated on oxidized silicon wafers
