Carbon Nano Structures & Devices Chapter 2

Spin Dependent Transport in Carbon Nanostructures

Authors: N.M. Harrison, B. Montanari

Affilation: Imperial College London, United Kingdom

Pages: 211 - 214

Keywords: carbon, graphene, magnetism, spintronics, transistor theory, DFT

A theoretical investigation of the electronic and magnetic structure in carbon nanoribbons, defective graphene and carbon peapod structures. The critical importance of electron correlation in the emergent behaviour will be demonstrated for; the generation of long range magnetic interactions, spin dependent transport and the localisation of well defined spin qubits.
