Title: Edge states, magnetisation and topological domain walls in graphene
Authors: Liu, Yang
Keywords: Graphene
Edge states
Snake states
Topological domain walls
Issue Date: 2016
Publisher: © Yang Liu
Abstract: We studied the edge states and their roles in conductivity and magnetism of graphene nanoribbions and flakes. we studied the Aharonov-Bohm effect in graphene nanodisks and rings. We described the quantum oscillations of the magnetization of graphene flakes. we have examined the snake-like states of transport electrons in the configurations of graphene ribbons with a domain wall in the centre.
