In this work, we present a performance analysis of field-effect transistors (FETs) based on recently fabricated 100% hydrogenated graphene (the so-called graphane) and theoretically predicted semihydrogenated graphene (i.e., graphone). The approach is based on accurate calculations of the energy bands by means of GW approximation, subsequently fitted with a three-nearest neighbor sp(3) tight-binding Hamiltonian, and finally used to compute ballistic transport in transistors based on…

Multiscale Modeling for Graphene-Based Nanoscale Transistors
This paper presents a comprehensive overview of the main physical models providing a quantitative understanding of the operation of nanoscale transistors, focusing on the ongoing efforts to consistently connect simulations at different levels of physical abstraction in order to evaluate materials, device, and circuit properties.
Scaling of the energy gap in pattern-hydrogenated graphene.
The dispersion relation, obtained through calculation of the momentum-energy resolved density of states, is shown to agree with previous angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy results, and simulations of electronic transport in finite size samples reveal a similar transport gap.

We investigated a variety of configurations of hydrogen-vacancy chains in graphane by first-principles density functional calculation. We found that graphane with two zigzag H-vacancy chains


Nanotechnology is the set of technologies that enables the manipulation, study or exploitation of very small (typically less than 100 nanometres) structures and systems. To put this into perspective,
