Transport properties of graphene van der Waals structures
The transport properties of graphene on boron-nitride or on other graphene layers are strongly modified due to an induced periodic potential. Because of a weak inter-layer coupling (van der Waals), the relative mismatch becomes an important tuning parameter. We will numerically investigate the influence of substrate strain and rotation on transport. This study will provide a theoretical understanding of recent experiments by the Manchester group.
