Thomas Seligman: Conduction in realistic graphene related nano-structures: Tight bindng, Microwave experiments and outlook to many-body calculations
June 1 @ 2:15 pm - 3:30 pm
We present recent microwave experiments and corresponding tight binding calculations for acetylene and carbon nano-strips. In particular we focus on band gaps near the Dirac point and its sensitivity to the details of the connections. Finally we shall briefly discuss the perspectives of making effective many-body calculations by extending the techniques developed for the extension DFT-based programs to transport.
