  author={H. P. Ojeda Collado and Gonzalo Usaj and C. A. Balseiro},
We study the problem of non-magnetic impurities adsorbed on bilayer graphene in the diluted regime. We analyze the impurity spectral densities for various concentrations and gate fields. We also analyze the effect of the adsorbate on the local density of states (LDOS) of the different C atoms in the structure and present some evidence of strong localization for the electronic states with energies close to the Dirac point.

Impurities in a biased graphene bilayer.
It is shown that the properties of the bound states, such as localization lengths and binding energies, can be controlled externally by an electric field effect.
Localized states due to expulsion of resonant impurity levels from the continuum in bilayer graphene.
The Anderson impurity problem is considered for a graphene bilayer subject to a gap-opening bias and the implications for transport are discussed including a possibility of the gate-controlled Kondo effect.
Modeling electronic structure and transport properties of graphene with resonant scattering centers
We present a detailed numerical study of the electronic properties of single-layer graphene with resonant (hydrogen) impurities and vacancies within a framework of noninteracting tight-binding model
The electronic properties of bilayer graphene.
The tight-binding model is used to describe optical and transport properties including the integer quantum Hall effect, and the also discusses orbital magnetism, phonons and the influence of strain on electronic properties.
