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… 



Quasibound states of quantum dots in single and bilayer graphene

Dirac fermions interacting with a cylindrically symmetric quantum dot potential created in single and bilayer graphene are not confined but form quasibound states. The broadening of these quasibound

Confined states and direction-dependent transmission in graphene quantum wells

We report the existence of confined massless fermion states in a graphene quantum well (QW) by means of analytical and numerical calculations. These states show an unusual quasilinear dependence on

Density of states as a probe of electrostatic confinement in graphene

We theoretically analyze the possibility to confine electrons in single-layer graphene with the help of metallic gates, via the evaluation of the density of states of such a gate-defined quantum dot

Mass-profile quantum dots in graphene and artificial periodic structures

We analyze the bound-state spectra of mass-profile quantum dots in graphene, a system at current experimental reach. Homogeneous perpendicular magnetic fields are also considered which result in

Electrostatic confinement of electrons in an integrable graphene quantum dot.

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.

Electric transport through circular graphene quantum dots: Presence of disorder

This work reports on electron transport in quantum dot devices carved entirely from graphene, demonstrating the possibility of molecular-scale electronics based on graphene.

Interplay of Aharonov-Bohm and Berry phases in gate-defined graphene quantum dots

We study the influence of a magnetic flux tube on the possibility to electrostatically confine electrons in a graphene quantum dot. Without magnetic flux tube, the graphene pseudospin is responsible
