Our recently reported spin and angular resolved photoemission (SARPES) results on an epitaxial graphene monolayer on SiC(0001) suggested the presence of a large Rashba-type spin splitting of \Delta k=(0.030+-0.005)1/A [1]. Although this value was orders of magnitude larger than predicted theoretically, it could be reconciled with the line width found in conventional spin-integrated high resolution angular resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) data. Here we present novel measurements for a…

A proposed experimental diagnosing of specular Andreev reflection using the spin orbit interaction
The results show that, if only the RSOI is present, the chirality-resolved Andreev tunneling conductance can be enhanced in the superconducting gap, while it always shows a suppression effect for the case of the DSOI alone.
Energy spectrum and Landau levels in bilayer graphene with spin–orbit interaction
We present a theoretical study of the band structure and Landau levels in bilayer graphene at low energies in the presence of a transverse magnetic field and Rashba spin–orbit interaction in the

Geometric and Electronic Properties of Graphene-Related Systems: Chemical Bonding Schemes
Due to its physical, chemical, and material properties, graphene has been widely studied both theoretically and experimentally since it was first synthesized in 2004. This book explores in detail the
Spin-orbit concept of open-shell systems
The paper presents a first attempt to look at the peculiarities of open-shell systems from the viewpoint of spin-orbit coupling. Contrary to common opinion of a negligible role of the issue for light


Quantitative vectorial spin analysis in angle-resolved photoemission: Bi ∕ Ag ( 111 ) and Pb ∕ Ag ( 111 )
The concept of vectorial spin analysis in spin and angle-resolved photoemission is illustrated in this paper. Two prototypical systems, Bi/ Ag11133R30° and Pb/ Ag11133R30°, which show a large
Electronic spin transport and spin precession in single graphene layers at room temperature
The observation of spin transport, as well as Larmor spin precession, over micrometre-scale distances in single graphene layers is reported, indicating that spin coherence extends underneath all of the contacts.

Origin of anomalous electronic structures of epitaxial graphene on silicon carbide.
It is reported that a novel interfacial atomic structure occurs between graphene and the surface of silicon carbide, destroying the Dirac point of graphene and opening a substantial energy gap there, resolving a long standing experimental controversy on the periodicity of the interfacial superstructures.
