Since the outstanding transport properties of graphene originate from its specific structure, modification at the atomic level of the graphene lattice is needed in order to change its electronic properties. Thus, topological defects play an important role in graphene and related structures. In this work, one-dimensional (1D) arrangement of topological defects in graphene are investigated within a density functional theory framework. These 1D extended lines of pentagons, heptagons and octagons… CONTINUE READING
