Electronic Structure and Transport Properties of Graphene on Hexagonal Boron Nitride
06 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Shukai Yao, Luis Regalado Bermejo, Alejandro Strachan
Graphene is a zero-bandgap conductor with high carrier mobility. It is desired to search for an opening of band structure of graphene such that this kind of material can be applied in electronic devices. Depositing hexagonal Boron Nitride (h-BN) opens a bandgap in the band structure of...
Low Temperature Enhancement of the Thermoelectric Seebeck Coefficient in Semiconductor Nanoribbons
09 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Kommini Adithya, Zlatan Aksamija
IWCE 2015 Presentation. We propose a novel approach to achieving a narrow window-shaped TDF through a combination of a step-like 2-dimensional density-of-states (DOS) and inelastic optical phonon scattering. A shift in the onset of scattering with respect to the step-like DOS creates a TDF which...
