Trilayer graphene (TLG) exhibits rich novel electronic properties and extraordinary quantum Hall phenomena owning to enhanced electronic interactions and tunable chirality of its quasiparticles. Here, we report direct observation of chirality transition of quasiparticles at stacking solitons of TLG via spatial-resolved Landau level spectroscopy. The one-dimensional stacking solitons with width of the order of 10 nm separate adjacent Bernal-stacked TLG and rhombohedral-stacked TLG. By using high… Expand
High-resolution tunneling spectroscopy of ABA-stacked trilayer graphene
ABA-stacked trilayer graphene (TLG), the simplest system consisting of both monolayerlike and bilayerlike Dirac fermions, is expected to exhibit many interesting broken-symmetry quantum Hall statesExpand
Landau quantization of Dirac fermions in graphene and its multilayers
When electrons are confined in a two-dimensional (2D) system, typical quantum–mechanical phenomena such as Landau quantization can be detected. Graphene systems, including the single atomic layer andExpand
High-Magnetic-Field Tunneling Spectra of ABC-Stacked Trilayer Graphene on Graphite.
TLDR
Using high-magnetic-field scanning tunneling microscopy, Landau Level (LL) spectroscopy measurements of high-quality ABC-stacked TLG on graphite indicate that the spin splitting decreases dramatically with increasing the LL index, implying that interesting broken-symmetry states and novel electron correlated effects could emerge in the ABC-STACK TLG in the presence of high magnetic fields.

Quantum transport across van der Waals domain walls in bilayer graphene.
TLDR
It is found that the transmission can exhibit a valley-dependent layer asymmetry and that the domain walls have a considerable effect on the chiral tunnelling properties of the charge carriers. Expand
