As the three-dimensional analogs of graphene, Weyl semimetals display signatures of chiral anomaly which arises from charge pumping between the lowest chiral Landau levels of the Weyl nodes in the presence of parallel electric and magnetic fields. In this work, we study the pseudo chiral anomaly and its transport signatures in graphene ribbon with zigzag edges. Here "pseudo" refers to the case where the inverse of width of zigzag graphene ribbon plays the same role as magnetic field in three…

Edge state in AB-stacked bilayer graphene and its correspondence with the Su-Schrieffer-Heeger ladder
We study edge states in AB-stacked bilayer graphene (BLG) ribbon where the Chern number of the corresponding two-dimensional (2D) bulk Hamiltonian is zero. The existence and topological features of


Chiral anomaly and anomalous finite-size conductivity in graphene
Graphene is a monolayer of carbon atoms packed into a hexagon lattice to host two spin degenerate pairs of massless two-dimensional Dirac fermions with different chirality. It is known that the
Giant negative magnetoresistance induced by the chiral anomaly in individual Cd3As2 nanowires
A large negative magnetoresistance with magnitude of −63% at 60 K and −11% at 300’K in individual Cd3As2 nanowires is shown to give evidence of the chiral anomaly effect and are valuable for understanding the Weyl fermions in Dirac semimetals.
Perfectly conducting channel and universality crossover in disordered graphene nanoribbons.
Graphene ribbons with zigzag edges have two valleys well separated in momentum space, related to the two Dirac points of the graphene spectrum, which gives rise to a perfectly conducting channel in the disordered system, if the impurity scattering does not connect the two valleys.
Zak phase and the existence of edge states in graphene
We develop a method to predict the existence of edge states in graphene ribbons for a large class of boundaries. This approach is based on the bulk-edge correspondence between the quantized value of
Chiral Anomaly from Strain-Induced Gauge Fields in Dirac and Weyl Semimetals
Dirac and Weyl semimetals form an ideal platform for testing ideas developed in high energy physics to describe massless relativistic particles. One such quintessentially field-theoretic idea of
Electronic states of graphene nanoribbons studied with the Dirac equation
We study the electronic states of narrow graphene ribbons (``nanoribbons'') with zigzag and armchair edges. The finite width of these systems breaks the spectrum into an infinite set of bands, which
High-field magnetoconductivity of topological semimetals with short-range potential
Weyl semimetals are three-dimensional topological states of matter, in a sense that they host paired monopoles and antimonopoles of Berry curvature in momentum space, leading to the chiral anomaly.
Electronic and magnetic properties of nanographite ribbons
Electronic and magnetic properties of ribbon-shaped nanographite systems with zigzag and armchair edges in a magnetic field are investigated by using a tight-binding model. One of the most remarkable
The electronic properties of graphene
This article reviews the basic theoretical aspects of graphene, a one-atom-thick allotrope of carbon, with unusual two-dimensional Dirac-like electronic excitations. The Dirac electrons can be
Peculiar Localized State at Zigzag Graphite Edge
We study the electronic states of graphite ribbons with edges of two typical shapes, armchair and zigzag, by performing tight binding band calculations, and find that the graphite ribbons show
