# Soliton trap in strained graphene nanoribbons

@article{Sasaki2010SolitonTI, title={Soliton trap in strained graphene nanoribbons}, author={Ken-ichi Sasaki and Riichiro Saito and Mildred S. Dresselhaus and Katsunori Wakabayashi and Toshiaki Enoki}, journal={New Journal of Physics}, year={2010}, volume={12}, pages={103015} }

The wavefunction of a massless fermion consists of two chiralities, left handed and right handed, which are eigenstates of the chiral operator. The theory of weak interactions of elementary particle physics is not symmetric about the two chiralities, and such a symmetry-breaking theory is referred to as a chiral gauge theory. The chiral gauge theory can be applied to the massless Dirac particles of graphene. In this paper, we show within the framework of the chiral gauge theory for graphene… Expand
