Title: Electronic and mechanical properties of hybrid graphene/h-BN nanoribbons

The electronic and mechanical properties of one-dimensional super lattice which are composed of controlled domain size of graphene and h-BN nanoribbons with saturated and unsaturated edges are studied by means of the first-principles method. The results show that the studied zigzag- nanoribbons (Z-GBNNR) with unsaturated edges are half-metallic, while they transform into non-magnetic semiconductor on hydrogen passivations. On the other hand the band-gap of armchair-edges nanoribbons (A-GBNNR) get enhanced by the edges saturation. Furthermore, unsaturated edges A-GBNNR and saturated edges Z-GBNNR are found mechanically more stable. These results provide a fingerprint for their use in spintronics and electronics devices.
