Abstract

Effect of electron interaction of electronic and transport properties of graphene ribbons is unexplored topic to a large extent. In this project, quantum-mechanical calculations are to be performed to address some of those issues. Particularly, the effects of electron interaction on the transport gap in ideal and disordered ribbons will be studied. A part of the problem is the need for self-consistent calculations to obtain charge densities and potentials for a system out of neutrality. The methods requiring self-consistent calculations constitute a difficulty for research and to tackle that computational resources are required.
