Electron transmission through graphene monolayer-bilayer junction: An analytical approach
2012 (English)In: Lithuanian Journal of Physics, ISSN 1648-8504, Vol. 52, no 1, 70-80 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A junction of monolayer and bilayer graphene nanoribbons is investigated using the tight-binding approximation. An external potential is applied on the bilayer graphene layers to control the electronic transport properties of the junction. The reflection and transmission probabilities for an incident electron at the junction are analytically calculated. The dependence of the reflection probability on the external potential, the wave vector of the incident electron and the width of the nanoribbon are evaluated.
