  • We have theoretically investigated the electronic resonant tunneling effect in graphene superlattice heterostructures, where a tunable graphene layer is inserted between two different superlattices. It is found that a complete tunneling state appears inside the enlarged forbidden gap of the heterostructure by changing the thickness of the inserted graphene layer and the transmittance of the tunneling state depends on the thickness of the inserted layer. Furthermore, the frequency of the tunneling state changes with the thickness of the inserted graphene layer but it always located in the little overlapped forbidden gap of two graphene superlattices. Therefore, both a perfect tunnelingmore » state and an ultrawide forbidden gap are realized in such heterostrutures. Since maximum probability densities of the perfect tunneling state are highly localized near the interface between the inserted graphene layer and one graphene superlattice, it can be named as an interface-like state. Such structures are important to fabricate high-Q narrowband electron wave filters.« less
  • We have studied the magneto-transport and magnetic properties of LSMO/YBCO/LSMO trilayers on LaAlO{sub 3} (001) substrate, deposited using pulsed laser deposition technique. From x-ray diffraction measurements, it is confirmed that the grown trilayer films are single phase natured. The temperature dependent resistivity shows a metallic behavior below 350 K. At low temperature from resistivity fitted data, we observe that electron-electron, electron-phonon, and electron-magnon interactions are the main factors for scattering of carriers. The ferromagnetic LSMO layers suppress the critical temperature of YBCO spacer layer. We observe maximum magnetoresistance value ∼49% at 250 K for LSMO(200 nm)/YBCO(50 nm)/LSMO(200 nm) trilayer. Magnetization measurements reveal that at roommore » temperature the YBCO spacer layer is allowing the LSMO layers to interact antiferromagnetically.« less
  • We investigated double-doped InGaAs/InAlAs heterostructures with high indium compositions. The heterostructures were grown by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs(001) with metamorphic step-graded buffer layers. The magneto-transport characterization was performed by using Hall-bar devices. We observed non-monotonic magneto-resistance oscillations, which indicate a single two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) with multiple-subband occupation or a 2DEG bilayer. We also observed weak-antilocalization in all samples, which is an evidence of spin-orbit coupling.
  • We consider tunneling transport between two parallel graphene sheets; where one is a single-layer sample and the other one a bi-layer. In the presence of an in-plane magnetic field, the interplay between combined energy and momentum conservation in a tunneling event and the distinctive chiral nature of charge carriers in the two systems turns out to favor tunneling of electrons from one of the two valleys in the graphene Brillouin zone. Adjusting the field strength enables manipulation of the valley polarization of the current, which reaches its maximum value of 100% concomitantly with a maximum of the tunneling conductance.
  • In this study, we address the electronic properties of conducting films constituted of an array of randomly distributed few layer graphene patches and investigate on their most salient galvanometric features in the moderate and extreme disordered limit. We demonstrate that, in annealed devices, the ambipolar behaviour and the onset of Landau level quantization in high magnetic field constitute robust hallmarks of few-layer graphene films. In the strong disorder limit, however, the magneto-transport properties are best described by a variable-range hopping behaviour. A large negative magneto-conductance is observed at the charge neutrality point, in consistency with localized transport regime.
