We present a nonlinear Thomas-Fermi theory which describes the electric charge screening in a system including two charged substrate layers separated by a few-layered graphene film. We show that by increasing the charge at the interfaces, the system can be turned from the weak screening regime where the whole film responds to the external charge to the strong screening regime where the external charge is screened by a surface charge distribution confined to the bounding graphene layers. The…

This model can be used for designing FLG-based devices, and offers a simple rule regarding the charge distribution: approximately 70%, 20%, 6% and 3% of the total induced charge density reside within the four innermost layers, implying that the gate-induced electric field is not definitely felt by >4th layer.

Charge distribution and screening in layered graphene systems
The charge distribution induced by external fields in finite stacks of graphene planes, or in semi-infinite graphite is considered. The interlayer electronic hybridization is described by a
Surface potentials and layer charge distributions in few-layer graphene films.
Electrostatic force microscopy measurements reveal that the FLG surface potential increases with film thickness, approaching a "bulk" value for samples with five or more graphene layers, and derives from unique aspects of charge screening by graphene's relativistic low energy carriers.
Interlayer interaction and electronic screening in multilayer graphene investigated with angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy.
By detailed measurements of the pi bands, the stacking order, layer-dependent electron potential, screening length, and strength of interlayer interaction are derived by comparison with tight binding calculations, yielding a comprehensive description of multilayer graphene's electronic structure.

Substrate-induced bandgap opening in epitaxial graphene.
It is shown that when graphene is epitaxially grown on SiC substrate, a gap of approximately 0.26 eV is produced and it is proposed that the origin of this gap is the breaking of sublattice symmetry owing to the graphene-substrate interaction.
