@article{Bouhlal2022ZeroEnergySI, title={Zero-Energy States in Graphene Quantum Dot with Wedge Disclination}, author={Ahmed Bouhlal and Ahmed Jellal and Nurisya Mohd Shah}, journal={SSRN Electronic Journal}, year={2022} }

We investigate the eﬀects of wedge disclination on charge carriers in circular graphene quantum dots subjected to a magnetic ﬂux. Using the asymptotic solutions of the energy spectrum for large arguments, we approximate the scattering matrix elements, and then study the density of states. It is found that the density of states shows several resonance peaks under various conditions. In particular, it is shown that the wedge disclination is able to change the amplitude, width, and positions of…

The conductance of an undoped graphene sheet with a small region subject to an electrostatic gate potential is compared for the cases that the dynamics in the gated region is regular and classically chaotic and for the stadium, the conductance loses its dependence on the gate voltage upon reducing the area fraction of thegated region.
