Graphene has shown great application potential as the host material for next-generation electronic devices. However, despite its intriguing properties, one of the biggest hurdles for graphene to be useful as an electronic material is the lack of an energy gap in its electronic spectra. This, for example, prevents the use of graphene in making transistors. Although several proposals have been made to open a gap in graphene's electronic spectra, they all require complex engineering of the… Expand
Bandgap Opening by Patterning Graphene
TLDR
The analytic rule of gap-opening by patterning graphene is derived, which indicates that if a modified graphene is a semiconductor, its two corresponding carbon nanotubes, whose chiral vectors equal graphene's supercell lattice vectors, are both semimetals. Expand

Interfacial engineering in graphene bandgap.
TLDR

Tunable electronic properties induced by a defect-substrate in graphene/BC3 heterobilayers.
TLDR
Interestingly, the characteristics of a Dirac cone with a nearly linear band dispersion relationship of graphene can be preserved, accompanied by a small electron effective mass, and thus the higher carrier mobility is still expected. Expand

Energy gaps in graphene nanoribbons.
TLDR
The authors' ab initio calculations show that the origin of energy gaps for GNRs with armchair shaped edges arises from both quantum confinement and the crucial effect of the edges, which differs from the results of simple tight-binding calculations or solutions of the Dirac's equation based on them.

TLDR
The graphene is doped and a gap opens at the Dirac point after three Bernal stacked carbon layers are formed and evidence of a charge transfer that depends on the interface geometry is presented. Expand
Energy band-gap engineering of graphene nanoribbons.

It is found that the energy gap scales inversely with the ribbon width, thus demonstrating the ability to engineer the band gap of graphene nanostructures by lithographic processes. Expand
