# Kelvin-Helmholtz instability of the Dirac fluid of charge carriers on graphene

@article{Coelho2017KelvinHelmholtzIO, title={Kelvin-Helmholtz instability of the Dirac fluid of charge carriers on graphene}, author={Rodrigo C. V. Coelho and Miller Mendoza and Mauro M. Doria and Hans J{\"u}rgen Herrmann}, journal={Physical Review B}, year={2017}, volume={96}, pages={184307} }

We provide numerical evidence that a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability occurs in the Dirac fluid of electrons in graphene and can be detected in current experiments. This instability appears for electrons in the viscous regime passing though a micrometer-scale obstacle and affects measurements on the time scale of nanoseconds. A possible realization with a needle-shaped obstacle is proposed to produce and detect this instability by measuring the electric potential difference between contact points…
