Conductance enhancement due to atomic potential fluctuations in graphene

We solve the Dirac equation, which describes charge massless chiral relativistic carriers in a two-dimensional graphene. We have identified and analysed a novel pseudospin-dependent scattering

A Novel Design Approach of High Temperature Superconducting Magnets by Cultural Evolution Algorithms

The superconducting magnets have many advantages compared with conventional electromagnets. A novel design approach is presented in this paper for the high temperature superconducting magnets by the

This manuscript comprehensively reviews the biosensing applications of graphene and its derivatives (i.e. GO and rGO).



Tunneling conductance of the graphene SNS junction with a single localized defect

Using the Dirac-Bogoliubov-de Gennes equation, we study the electron transport in a graphene-based superconductor-normal(graphene)-superconductor (SNS) junction. We consider the properties of

Graphene-based modulation-doped superlattice structures

The electronic transport properties of graphene-based superlattice structures are investigated. A graphene-based modulation-doped superlattice structure geometry is proposed consisting of

Spin confinement in the superlattices of graphene ribbons

Based on first-principles calculations, we showed that repeated heterostructures of zigzag graphene nanoribbons of different widths form multiple quantum well structures. Edge states of specific spin

Electronic properties of graphene

Graphene is the first example of truly two‐dimensional crystals – it's just one layer of carbon atoms. It turns out that graphene is a gapless semiconductor with unique electronic properties

First principles calculations of spin-dependent conductance of graphene flakes

Using ab initio density-functional theory and quantum transport calculations based on nonequilibrium Green's function formalism we study structural, electronic, and transport properties of

Room-temperature superfluidity in graphene bilayers

Because graphene is an atomically two-dimensional gapless semiconductor with nearly identical conduction and valence bands, graphene-based bilayers are attractive candidates for high-temperature

Gate-induced insulating state in bilayer graphene devices.

This work demonstrates the controlled induction of an insulating state--with large suppression of the conductivity--in bilayer graphene, by using a double-gate device configuration that enables an electric field to be applied perpendicular to the plane.

Electric-field control of magnetism in graphene quantum dots: Ab initio calculations.

It is predicted that the magnetic states of hydrogenated diamond-shaped zigzag graphene quantum dots, each exhibiting unique electronic structure, can be selectively tuned with gate voltage, through Stark or hybridization electric-field modulation of the spatial distribution and energy of the spin-polarized molecular orbitals, leading to transitions between these states.

Screening and interlayer coupling in multilayer graphene field-effect transistors.

A very particular thickness dependence for I( on), I(off), and the I(on)/I(off) ratio is found and a resistor network model including screening and interlayer coupling is proposed to explain the experimental findings.
