2 FEW EXAMPLES OF MOST RECENT MANCHESTER

3 Physics at the Dirac Point (Lifshitz transition in bilayer) Serge Morozov unpublished

6 suspended devices 2 m fractional QHE Manchester, unpublished first reported by Andreis group, Nature 09 Kims group, Nature 09; Laus group, arxiv 2010 million mobilities but the quality of quantization remains really bad need 4-probe devices ! -55 concentration (10 10 cm -2 ) resistivity (k ) K 200 K Temperature

8 -55 concentration (10 10 cm -2 ) resistivity (k ) K 200 K Temperature Dirac point PROBING DIRAC POINT NO ENERGY GAP NO ENERGY GAP NO METAL-INSULATOR NO METAL-INSULATORTRANSITION even with one electron per device monolayer: min moves closer to 4e 2 / h bilayer: min remains > 4e 2 /h T T approaches T=0 approx. linearly

9 PROBING DIRAC POINT MONOLAYER: gradual gap opening BILAYER: more complex behavior

10 PROBING DIRAC POINT BILAYER: more complex behavior magnetoresistance at Dirac point (k ) 5 15 (k ) 128 B =0.25 T ~3x10 9 cm -2 ~3x10 9 cm -2 energy gap induced by gate is less than T =4 =-4

18 MESSAGE TO TAKE AWAY LIFSHITZ TRANSITION MODIFIED BY SOMETHING(?) DIRAC POINT PHYSICS IS ACCESSIBLE TO STUDIES IN ALL DETAILS million mobilities in 4-probe geometry should bring a lot more of new physics

19 Leaving the Carbon Flatland Peter Blake unpublished vertical transport through one-atom-thick crystals

24 MESSAGE TO TAKE AWAY LAYER-BY-LAYER CONSTRUCTION OF VARIOUS TUNNELING DEVICES & QUANTUM WELLS NEW VENUE: ATOMICALLY SMOOTH, CONTINUOUS ONE-, TWO, FEW-ATOM-THICK TUNNEL BARRIERS (beyond MBE; any surface)

25 Pseudo-Magnetic Fields by Strain by Strain Paco Guinea, M. Katsnelson & AKG Nature Phys 2010

26 Electronic Properties under Strain elastically stretched by > 15% Manchester+Cambridge, PRB 2009; Small 2009 Hones group, PNAS 2009 band structure changes little no gap expected even at 25% stretch Castro Neto, PRB 2009

27 practically always rippled non-uniform strain causes pseudo-magnetic field Manchester, PRL 2006 Manchester, PRL 2006 B+ B- Non-Uniform Strain

28 [100] [010] [001] Creating Uniform Pseudo-Magnetic Field graphenedisk graphenerectangular UNIFORM FIELD K K insulatingbulk counter propagating edge currents STRAIN ONLY Nature Phys 2010; PRB 2010 field of 10T: 10% strain in m samples

30 MESSAGE TO TAKE AWAY Strain Engineering Can Open Really Large Gaps Pseudo-Magnetic field can be UNIFORM: Landau quantization and QHE in zero magnetic field

31 Magneto Oscillations in Quantum Capacitance Leonid Ponomarenko arxiv & PRL 2010

32 Capacitance Measurements 100 m SiO 2 /insulating Si Au/Ti Al (top gate) 10 nm aluminium oxide graphene QUALITATIVE OBSERVATIONS: Chen & Appenzeller 2008 Xia et al Nature Nano 2009 Giannazzo at al NanoLett 2009 ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs

33 Capacitance Measurements saturates to classical value C oxide sharpness of the dip is determined by v F 100 m SiO 2 /insulating Si Au/Ti Al (top gate) 10 nm aluminium oxide graphene ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs QUALITATIVE OBSERVATIONS: Chen & Appenzeller 2008 Xia et al Nature Nano 2009 Giannazzo at al NanoLett 2009

34 Capacitance Varies with Concentration v F 1.1(±0.1)·10 6 m/s 100 m SiO 2 /insulating Si Au/Ti Al (top gate) 10 nm aluminium oxide graphene smearing n 5·10 11 cm -2 n 5·10 11 cm -2 saturates to classical value C oxide sharpness of the dip is determined by v F QUANTITATIVEAGREEMENT ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs ~10,000 cm 2 /Vs

35 Magneto Capacitance Oscillations 250K 150K 100K 200K B =16 T C ( F/cm 2 ) V top gate (V) 30K 12T 8T 4T B =0T T =10 K C ( F/cm 2 ) V top gate (V) pronouncedmagneto-oscillations easily survive to room T

36 MESSAGE TO TAKE AWAY Quantum Capacitance is a Huge Effect in Graphene Landau Quantization Survives at Room T in Modest Fields (unlike transport, this does not require >30T)

37 CONCLUSION GRAPHENE IS A GOLD MINE FOR NEW SCIENCE & APPLICATIONS does NOT feel at all like a mature research area MUCH MORE TO COME

41 GRAPHENE NANO-CIRCUITS E = v F h/2D E = v F h/2D not 1/D 2 as for electrons but much larger 1/D as for slow photons 10 nm e-b lithography

43 10 nm stable and robust down to a few nm in size sustains large (~1 A per atom) currents gate (V) ( S) nm 1-10 nm 300 K PROBLEM: no tools to sculpture at true nm scale (same for any other nanoelectronics approach) GRAPHENE NANO-CIRCUITS top-down molecular electronics molecular electronics
