Monolayer graphite films, or graphene, have quasiparticle excitations that can be described by (2+1)-dimensional Dirac theory. We demonstrate that this produces an unconventional form of the quantized Hall conductivity sigma(xy) = -(2e2/h)(2n+1) with n = 0, 1, ..., which notably distinguishes graphene from other materials where the integer quantum Hall effect was observed. This unconventional quantization is caused by the quantum anomaly of the n=0 Landau level and was discovered in recent…

Modelling and design of graphene-based THz devices

In recent years, terahertz (THz) frequency band has gained great interest of researchers in a number of fields due to attractive THz applications such as wireless communications, remote sensing and

Tight-binding model and ab initio calculation of silicene with strong spin-orbit coupling in low-energy limit

We carry out both the tight-binding model and the $ab\ initio$ to study the layered silicene, the spin, valley, sublattice degrees of freedom are taken into consider and the effects of electric

Electronic transport in graphene: p-n junctions, shot noise, and nanoribbons

Novel, two-dimensional materials have allowed for the inception and elucidation of a plethora of physical phenomena. On such material, a hexagonal lattice of carbon atoms called graphene, is a

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

Nontrivial magnetic field related phenomena in the singlelayer graphene on ferroelectric substrate (Review Article)

The review is focused on our predictions of nontrivial physical phenomena taking place in the nanostructure single-layer graphene on ferroelectric substrate, which are related with magnetic field. ...

Dirac dispersion in two-dimensional photonic crystals

We show how one may obtain conical (Dirac) dispersions in photonic crystals, and in some cases, such conical dispersions can be used to create a metamaterial with an effective zero refractive index.
