Controlling the interactions Near charge neutrality and subject to perpendicular magnetic fields, graphene is expected to become a ferromagnet with edge states not unlike those in two-dimensional topological insulators. Observing this effect experimentally has proven tricky because very large magnetic fields are needed to overcome the effect of electron-electron interactions, which drive the system to competing states. Instead of amping up the field, Veyrat et al. placed their graphene samples… 

Imaging tunable quantum Hall broken-symmetry orders in graphene.

ABSTARCT When electrons populate a flat band their kinetic energy becomes negligible, forcing them to organize in exotic many-body states to minimize their Coulomb energy1-5. The zeroth Landau level

Absence of edge reconstruction for quantum Hall edge channels in graphene devices

Electronic edge states in topological insulators have become a major paradigm in physics. The oldest and primary example is that of quantum Hall (QH) edge channels that propagate along the periphery

Mean-field theories have since long predicted edge magnetism in graphene nanoribbons, where the order parameter is given by the local magnetization. However, signatures of edge magnetism appears

Compact SQUID Realized in a Double-Layer Graphene Heterostructure.

A compact double-layer graphene SQUID (superconducting quantum interference device), where the superconducting loop is reduced to the superconductor contacts connecting two parallel graphene Josephson junctions, which measures a well-defined conductance plateau of 2e2/h indicative of counter-propagating edge channels in the two layers.

The observation of the fractional quantum Hall effect in ultraclean, suspended graphene is reported and it is shown that at low carrier density graphene becomes an insulator with a magnetic-field-tunable energy gap.

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.
