Conformal symmetry and vortices in graphene Institute of Particle and Nuclear Physics
This study provides an introductory insight into the complex field of graphene and its relativistic-like behaviour. The thesis is opened by an overview to this topic and draws special attention to
Generalized Dirac structure beyond the linear regime in graphene
We show that a generalized Dirac structure survives beyond the linear regime of the low-energy dispersion relations of graphene. A generalized uncertainty principle of the kind compatible with
Gravitational Waves and Helicity in Undoped Graphene
The behavior of a monolayer undoped graphene sheet in presence of a weak gravitational wave is discussed. In the low‐energy limit, the linear dispersion of the energy levels near the Dirac points can
The Aharonov?Bohm?Coulomb problem in a graphene ring
We study the Aharonov–Bohm–Coulomb problem in a graphene ring. We investigate, in particular, the effects of a Coulomb-type potential of the form ξ/r on the energy spectrum of Dirac electrons in the
Analog hep-th, on Dirac materials and in general
The work of our group on reproducing scenarios of high energy theoretical physics on Dirac materials, like graphene, is illustrated. The main goal of this paper is to explain how versatile these
Graphene, Dirac equation and analogue gravity
We provide an updated study of some electronic properties of graphene nanoscrolls, exploiting a related curved space Dirac equation for the charge carriers. To this end, we consider an explicit

In this paper, we use the generalized Dirac structure beyond the linear regime of graphene. This is probed using the a deformation of the Dirac structure in graphene by the generalized uncertainty
Graphene: QFT in curved spacetimes close to experiments
A recently proposed step-by-step procedure, to merge the low-energy physics of the π-bonds electrons of graphene, and quantum field theory on curved spacetimes, is recalled. The last step there is


Electronic transport in two-dimensional graphene
We provide a broad review of fundamental electronic properties of two-dimensional graphene with the emphasis on density and temperature dependent carrier transport in doped or gated graphene
Graphene with geometrically induced vorticity.
It is explicitly demonstrated that in the presence of a geometrically induced gauge field an everywhere-real Kekulé modulation of the hopping matrix elements can correspond to a nonreal Higgs field with nontrivial vorticity.
The structure of suspended graphene sheets
These studies by transmission electron microscopy reveal that individual graphene sheets freely suspended on a microfabricated scaffold in vacuum or air are not perfectly flat: they exhibit intrinsic microscopic roughening such that the surface normal varies by several degrees and out-of-plane deformations reach 1 nm.
Charge inhomogeneities due to smooth ripples in graphene sheets
We study the effect of the curved ripples observed in the free standing graphene samples on the electronic structure of the system. We model the ripples as smooth curved bumps and compute the Green's
Spin and the honeycomb lattice: lessons from graphene.
This identification explains the suppression of electron backscattering in carbon nanotubes and the angular dependence of light absorption by graphene and demonstrates that half-integer spin like that carried by the quarks and leptons can derive from hidden substructure, not of the particles themselves, but rather of the space in which these particles live.
Intrinsic ripples in graphene.
It is found that ripples spontaneously appear owing to thermal fluctuations with a size distribution peaked around 80 A which is compatible with experimental findings and might be due to the multiplicity of chemical bonding in carbon.
Electron fractionalization for two-dimensional Dirac fermions
Fermion-number fractionalization without breaking of time-reversal symmetry was recently demonstrated for a field theory in (2 + 1)-dimensional space and time that describes the couplings between
Chiral gravity, log gravity, and extremal CFT
We show that the linearization of all exact solutions of classical chiral gravity around the ${\mathrm{AdS}}_{3}$ vacuum have positive energy. Nonchiral and negative-energy solutions of the
Electron density distribution and screening in rippled graphene sheets
Single-layer graphene sheets are typically characterized by long-wavelength corrugations (ripples) which can be shown to be at the origin of rather strong potentials with both scalar and vector
