Landau level quantization in graphene reflects the Dirac nature of its quasiparticles and has been found to exhibit an unusual integer quantum Hall effect. In particular, the lowest Landau level can be thought of as shared equally by electrons and holes, and this leads to characteristic behaviour of the magneto-optical conductivity as a function of frequency Ω for various values of the chemical potential μ. Particular attention is paid to the optical spectral weight under various absorption… 

Edge magnetoplasmons in graphene: Effects of gate screening and dissipation

Modulation effects on Landau levels in a monolayer graphene

Magnetoelectronic properties of a single-layer graphene are studied by the Peierls tight-binding model. A new numerical technique is developed to obtain a band-like Hamiltonian matrix. A spatially

The effect of a magnetic field on the conductivity of band-gap graphene has been investigated. In the case of a non-quantizing field, the magnetic-field dependences of the conductivity and Hall

Transport of Dirac quasiparticles in graphene: Hall and optical conductivities

The analytical expressions for both diagonal and off-diagonal ac and dc conductivities of graphene placed in an external magnetic field are derived. These conductivities exhibit rather unusual

Edge and surface states in the quantum Hall effect in graphene

We study the integer and fractional quantum Hall effect on a honeycomb lattice at half-filling (graphene) in the presence of disorder and electron-electron interactions. We show that the interactions

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.

Unusual microwave response of dirac quasiparticles in graphene.

It is shown that microwaves are an excellent probe of their unusual dynamics and the diagonal and Hall conductivities at small Omega become independent of B but remain nonzero and show a structure associated with the lowest Landau level.

The quantum Hall (QH) effect in two-dimensional electrons and holes in high quality graphene samples is studied in strong magnetic fields up to 45 T and can be attributed to lifting of the spin degeneracy of the n = 1 Landau level.
