Composite fermions and broken symmetries in graphene.
In the first two Landau levels, the two-flux composite-fermion sequences of FQH states between each integer filling factor suggest a broken-valley symmetry, consistent with the observation of a gap at charge neutrality and zero field.
Phase diagram for the ν=0 quantum Hall state in monolayer graphene
The $\nu=0$ quantum Hall state in a defect-free graphene sample is studied within the framework of quantum Hall ferromagnetism. We perform a systematic analysis of the pseudospin anisotropies, which
We investigate on the conductance properties of low mobility graphene in the quantum Hall regime at filling factor less than \({\textit v}=2.\) For this purpose, we compare the high-field
The effect of spin mixing on the quantum Hall effect in graphene
It is found that the spin-orbit coupling can open a gap in the energy spectrum of the counterpropagating edgeStates in the ν = 0 plateau region, while the edge states in other plateau regions remain gapless.
Properties of graphene: a theoretical perspective
The electronic properties of graphene, a two-dimensional crystal of carbon atoms, are exceptionally novel. For instance, the low-energy quasiparticles in graphene behave as massless chiral Dirac
Electron–hole coexistence in disordered graphene probed by high-field magneto-transport
We report on magneto-transport measurement in disordered graphene under a pulsed magnetic field of up to 57 T. For large electron or hole doping, the system displays the expected anomalous integer
Splitting of critical energies in the n=0 Landau level of graphene
The lifting of the degeneracy of states from the graphene n=0 Landau level (LL) is investigated through a non-interacting tight-binding model with random hoppings. A disorder-driven splitting of two
Enhancement of nonlocal exchange near isolated band crossings in graphene
The physics of non-local exchange interactions in graphene sheets is studied within a $\pi$-orbital tight-binding model using a Hartree-Fock approximation and Coulomb interactions modified at short
Electronic properties of graphene
Graphene is the first example of truly two‐dimensional crystals – it's just one layer of carbon atoms. It turns out that graphene is a gapless semiconductor with unique electronic properties
Quantum Hall Ferromagnetism in Multicomponent Systems
The present thesis deals with two-dimensional quantum Hall systems in which the electrons may be endowed with multiple discrete degrees of freedom. Quantum Hall ferromagnetism provides a framework to


Graphene integer quantum Hall effect in the ferromagnetic and paramagnetic regimes
Starting from the graphene lattice tight-binding Hamiltonian with an on-site U and long-range Coulomb repulsion, we derive an interacting continuum Dirac theory governing the low-energy behavior of
Electron interactions in graphene in a strong magnetic field
Graphene in the quantum Hall regime exhibits a multicomponent structure due to the electronic spin and chirality degrees of freedom. While the applied field breaks the spin symmetry explicitly, we
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.
Fractional quantum Hall effect in graphene
Unlike regular electron spin, the pseudospin degeneracy of Fermi points in graphene does not couple directly to magnetic field. Therefore graphene provides a natural vehicle to observe the integral
SU(4) composite fermions in graphene : Fractional quantum Hall states without analog in GaAs
Theoretical studies of the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE) in graphene have so far focused on the plausibility and stability of the previously known FQHE states for the interaction matrix
Randomness-induced XY ordering in a graphene quantum hall ferromagnet.
It is argued that such a random field stabilizes the XY ferromagnet state, which is a coherent equal-weight mixture of the K and K' valley states.
Quantum Hall ferromagnetism in graphene.
A criterion for the occurrence of interaction-driven quantum Hall effects near intermediate integer values of e2/h due to charge gaps in broken symmetry states is derived.
Fractional quantum Hall States of Dirac electrons in graphene.
The fractional quantum Hall states of Dirac electrons in a graphene layer in different Landau levels are investigated, finding that the ground state of the 2/3 system is fully valley-unpolarized and the energy gaps for electrons on the Landau-level index are suppressed.
Electronic properties of disordered two-dimensional carbon
Two-dimensional carbon, or graphene, is a semimetal that presents unusual low-energy electronic excitations described in terms of Dirac fermions. We analyze in a self-consistent way the effects of
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.
