The Corbino geometry allows one to investigate the propagation of electric current along a p-n interface in ballistic graphene in the absence of edge states appearing for the familiar Hall-bar geometry. Using the transfer matrix in the angular-momentum space we find that for sufficiently strong magnetic fields the current propagates only in one direction, determined by the magnetic field direction and the interface orientation, and the two valleys, K and K', are equally occupied. Spatially… Expand

The use of multiple current terminals on millimeter-scale graphene p-n junction devices fabricated with Corbino geometries, or quantum Hall resistance dartboards, has enabled the measurement ofExpand
Development of gateless quantum Hall checkerboard p-n junction devices.
Measurements of fractional multiples of the ν = 2 plateau quantized Hall resistance suggest that the scalability of p-n junction fabrication on millimetre or centimetre scales is feasible with regards to graphene device manufacturing by using the far more efficient process of standard ultraviolet lithography.

Wiedemann–Franz Law for Massless Dirac Fermions with Implications for Graphene
By adapting the handbook derivation of the WF law to the case of massless Dirac fermions, it is shown that significantly enhanced thermal conductivity should appear also in few- or even sub-kelvin temperatures, where the role of interactions can be neglected. Expand
Graphene disk in a solenoid magnetic potential: Aharonov-Bohm effect without a two-slit-like setup
The Aharonov-Bohm effect allows one to demonstrate the physical meaningfulness of magnetic vector potential by passing the current in zero magnetic field regions. In the standard (a {\emExpand


Semiclassical magnetotransport in graphene n-p junctions
We provide a semiclassical description of the electronic transport through graphene n-p junctions in the quantum Hall regime. This framework is known to experimentally exhibit conductance plateausExpand
Nonequilibrium valley polarization in graphene nanoconstrictions
We recently showed, using tight-binding calculations, that nonequilibrium valley polarization can be realized in graphene, when the current is injected through a "valley filter": a ballistic pointExpand
Magnetoconductance of the Corbino disk in graphene
Electron transport through the Corbino disk in graphene is studied in the presence of uniform magnetic fields. At the Dirac point, we observe conductance oscillations with the flux piercing the diskExpand
Snake trajectories in ultraclean graphene p–n junctions
Snake states are trajectories of charge carriers curving back and forth along an interface. There are two types of snake states, formed by either inverting the magnetic field direction or the chargeExpand
Theory of the valley-valve effect in graphene nanoribbons
A potential step in a graphene nanoribbon with zigzag edges is shown to be an intrinsic source of intervalley scattering -- no matter how smooth the step is on the scale of the lattice constant a.Expand
Pseudodiffusive magnetotransport in graphene
Transport properties through wide and short ballistic graphene junctions are studied in the presence of arbitrary dopings and magnetic fields. No dependence on the magnetic field is observed at theExpand
Quantized Transport in Graphene p-n Junctions in a Magnetic Field
This work explains the observed conductance quantization, which is fractional in the bipolar regime and an integer in the unipolar regime, in terms of quantum Hall edge modes propagating along and across the p-n interface. Expand
Valley Hall Effect and Nonlocal Transport in Strained Graphene
Graphene subject to high levels of shear strain leads to strong pseudo-magnetic fields resulting in the emergence of Landau levels. Here we show that, with modest levels of strain, graphene can alsoExpand
Antichiral Edge States in a Modified Haldane Nanoribbon.
This work proposes a feasible experimental realization of a system showing such antichiral edge modes in transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers and shows that backscattering is suppressed even when strong disorder is present in the system. Expand
Graphene Nanobubbles as Valley Filters and Beam Splitters.
This work suggests a way to obtain valley polarization using strain-induced inhomogeneous pseudomagnetic fields (PMFs) that act oppositely on the two valleys of graphene, whose associated PMFs lead to different real space trajectories for K and K^{'} electrons, thus allowing theTwo valleys to be addressed individually.
