A graphene-based superlattice formed due to the periodic modulation of the band gap has been investigated. Such a modulation is possible in graphene deposited on a strip substrate made of silicon oxide and hexagonal boron nitride. The advantages and some possible problems in the superlattice under consideration are discussed. A model describing such a superlattice is proposed and the dispersion relation between the energy and momentum of carriers has been obtained using the transfer matrix…

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.

Ab initio study of graphene on SiC.

Employing density-functional calculations, it is shown that, in contrast with earlier assumptions, the first carbon layer is covalently bonded to the substrate and cannot be responsible for the graphene-type electronic spectrum observed experimentally.

Giant intrinsic carrier mobilities in graphene and its bilayer.

Measurements show that mobilities higher than 200 000 cm2/V s are achievable, if extrinsic disorder is eliminated and a sharp (thresholdlike) increase in resistivity observed above approximately 200 K is unexpected but can qualitatively be understood within a model of a rippled graphene sheet in which scattering occurs on intraripple flexural phonons.
