Electronic structure and interlayer coupling in twisted multilayer graphene
MetadataShow full item record
It has been shown recently that high-quality epitaxial graphene (EPG) can be grown on the SiC substrate that exhibits interesting physical properties and has great advantages for varies device applications. In particular, the multilayer graphene films grown on the C-face show rotational disorder. It is expected that the twisted layers exhibit unique new physics that is distinct from that of either single layer graphene or graphite. In this work, by combining density functional and tight-binding model calculations, we investigate the electric field and doping effects on twisted bilayer graphene (TBG), multiple layer effects on twisted triple-layer graphene, and wave packet propagation properties of TBG. Though these studies, we obtain a comprehensive description of the interesting interlayer interaction in this twisted multilayer graphene system.
