  1. 1. Quantum Transport Theory in Graphene

    Författare :Anders Bergvall; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :quantum coherent electron transport; nanoribbons; FT-LDOS; grain boundaries; tight-binding; graphene;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, we focus on different aspects of electron transport in nanostructured graphene (such as graphene nanoribbons). Wedevelop and implement numerical methods to study quantum coherent electron transport on an atomistic level, complemented by analytical calculations based on the Dirac approximation valid close to the points $\vec{K}$ and $\vec{K}^\prime$ in the graphene Brillouin zone.

    Sammanfattning : Taking into account the technological demand for the controlled preparation of atomically precise graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with well-defined properties, the present thesis is focused on the investigation of the role of the underlying metal substrate in the process of building GNRs using bottom-up strategy and on the changes in the electronic structure of GNRs induced by the GNR-metal interaction. The combination of surface sensitive synchrotron-radiation-based spectroscopic techniques and scanning tunneling microscopy with in situ sample preparation allowed to trace evolution of the structural and electronic properties of the investigated systems.

  5. 5. Electron transport, interaction and spin in graphene and graphene nanoribbons

    Författare :Artsem Shylau; Igor Zozoulenko; Stephan Roche; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Since the isolation of graphene in 2004, this novel material has become the major object of modern condensed matter physics. Despite of enormous research activity in this field, there are still a number of fundamental phenomena that remain unexplained and challenge researchers for further investigations. LÄS MER
