Spin-orbit coupling in graphene structures D. Kochan, M. Gmitra, J. Fabian Stará Lesná, 25.8.2012

2
Outline Предварительные сведения Bloch vs. Wannier Tight-binding approximation = LCAO Graphene Spin-orbit-interaction in Graphene What we are doing ….

3
Bloch vs. Wannier Periodic structure Bloch Theorem Brillouin zone k set of good quantum numbers Direct lattice Dual lattice

4
Bloch vs. Wannier Bloch states: – delocalized & orthogonal – labeled by the momentum k Wannier states: – localized & orthogonal – labeled by the lattice vector R

5
Tight-binding approximation 1) Wannier states basis = local atomic orbitals 2) Bloch states basis = Bloch sum of local atomic orbitals

6
Tight-binding approximation 3) General solution: 4) Matrix(-secular) equation: How to compute ??-matrix elements?

7
Tight-binding approximation 5) The heart of TB approx: -nearest & next-nearest neighbors only few terms that are lowest in |R|

8
Tight-binding approximation only few terms that are lowest in |R| 5) The heart of TB approx: -nearest & next-nearest neighbors

Graphene – basic (orbital) model “relativistic” Hamiltonian Direct lattice Dual lattice - acts in pseudospin degrees of freedom – what is that? - seemingly 2D massless fermions - linear dispersion relation - BUT no-spin degrees of freedom, (when spin ) pseudospin up/down – amplitude to find e - on sublattice A/B
