Magneto-transport in large area epitaxial graphene grown on SiC - Emiliano Pallecchi - Mardi 28 mai 2013 à 11 h

Emiliano Pallecchi

In this talk I will present magneto-transport measurements on epitaxial graphene grown on SiC(0001), either under UHV or atmospheric pressure. A low pressure growth results in lowmobility devices were both a localized state at low magnetic fields and a quantum Hall state at higher fields are observed. We find that for sufficiently strong disorder the system undergoes a direct transition from an insulating to a relativistic Hall conductor regime. Analysis of the magneto-conductivity hints to a quantum phase transitions, rather than a simple crossover. For samples grown at atmospheric pressure we find high mobilities, up to 10.000 cm2/Vs, and the plateau at nu=2,6,10,14. Given the large sizes of our graphene Hall bars, the quantum Hall breakdown current are large, as required for metrological applications. Finally, I will briefly discuss the case of multi-layer graphene grown on SiC(000-1).
