Summary of "Topological and transport properties of graphene-based nanojunctions subjected to a magnetic field."

We study the topological properties of finite-size S-shaped graphene junctions with distinctive edge features subjected to the perpendicular magnetic field, using the tight-binding model. The quantum confinement and edge effects induced by the specific junction give rise to significant modifications in the Hofstadter spectra of the bent flakes, when compared to those of their perfect forms. Moreover, the results show that in absence of a magnetic field the sharpest zigzag-edged corners support the edge states rather than the others, but the magnetic field leads to the localization of the edge states along the whole perimeter of the flakes. Furthermore, based on the Green's function method, we investigate the electron transport through our proposed junctions. We show that, under magnetic flux, one can effectively control the energy gap and the conductance around the Fermi energy. Moreover, the transitions between metallic, semimetallic, and semiconducting phases are possible by the magnetic flux in the S-shaped junctions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Investigative techniques which measure the topological, geometric, and or geographic properties of the entities studied.

Techniques which study entities using their topological, geometric, or geographic properties and include the dimension of time in the analysis.

Measurement of the temperature of a material, or of the body or an organ by various temperature sensing devices which measure changes in properties of the material that vary with temperature, such as ELASTICITY; MAGNETIC FIELDS; or LUMINESCENCE.

The process of moving proteins from one cellular compartment (including extracellular) to another by various sorting and transport mechanisms such as gated transport, protein translocation, and vesicular transport.

A broad category of proteins involved in the formation, transport and dissolution of TRANSPORT VESICLES. They play a role in the intracellular transport of molecules contained within membrane vesicles. Vesicular transport proteins are distinguished from MEMBRANE TRANSPORT PROTEINS, which move molecules across membranes, by the mode in which the molecules are transported.
