Although evidence indicates that defects induce magnetism in graphite, it’s unclear whether this extends to graphene. An observation of the gate-tunable Kondo effect in ion-beam-damaged graphene suggests it does. 
Realization of a tunable artificial atom at a supercritically charged vacancy in graphene
Single carbon vacancies in graphene can host a positive charge that is tunable. When this charge is large enough such vacancies resemble artificial atoms, with an induced sequence of quasi-boundExpand
On the microscopic origin of bending of graphene nanoribbons in the presence of a perpendicular electric field.
This investigation demonstrates that the perpendicular field induces mixing of σ and π orbitals in graphene nanoribbons through the second order Stark effect which eventually modulates the electron-nuclear interaction strongly in favor of a bent structure. Expand

Room-temperature ferromagnetism in graphite driven by two-dimensional networks of point defects
Ferromagnetism usually only occurs in materials containing elements that form covalent 3d and 4f bonds. Its occurrence in pure carbon is therefore surprising, even controversial. A systematicExpand
Tuning Kondo physics in graphene with gate voltage
We show theoretically that graphene, which exhibits a massless dirac-like spectrum for its electrons, can exhibit unconventional kondo effect that can be tuned by an experimentally controllableExpand
Induced magnetic ordering by proton irradiation in graphite.
Evidence that proton irradiation of energy 2.25 MeV on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite samples triggers ferro- or ferrimagnetism is provided and magnetic ordering is stable at room temperature. Expand

Valuable insight into the influence of scattering from impurities on the peculiar electronic properties of graphene are gained by a systematic study of how its conductivity changes with increasingExpand
Magnetism in all-carbon nanostructures with negative Gaussian curvature.
It is found that particular systems, which are related to schwarzite and contain no undercoordinated carbon atoms, carry a net magnetic moment in the ground state, and postulate that, in this and other nonalternant aromatic systems with negative Gaussian curvature, unpaired spins can be introduced by sterically protected carbon radicals.

Defect scattering in graphene.
Defected graphene shows a diverging resistivity at low temperature, indicating insulating behavior, and is best explained by ion-induced formation of lattice defects that result in midgap states. Expand
On resonant scatterers as a factor limiting carrier mobility in graphene.
It is shown that graphene deposited on a substrate has a non-negligible density of atomic scale defects and the effect of such impurities on electron transport is evaluated by mimicking them with hydrogen adsorbates and measuring the induced changes in both mobility and Raman intensity. Expand

Weak-localization magnetoresistance and valley symmetry in graphene.
This work evaluates the dependence of the magnetoresistance of graphene on relaxation rates associated with various possible ways of breaking a "hidden" valley symmetry of the system by evaluating the dependent rates of trigonal warping and intervalley scattering. Expand
Orthogonality catastrophe and Kondo effect in graphene
