Electric field control of spin-polarized electron transport through zigzag graphene nanosheets — •Dirk Wiedmann1, Marius Bürkle2, and Fabian Pauly11Department of Physics, University of Konstanz, Germany — 2National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba, Japan

We study the spin-polarized transport through a finite zigzag graphene nanoribbon, contacted by carbon-nanotube electrodes [1]. The electronic structure is determined from density functional theory, and Green’s functions are used to compute the phase-coherent electric current within the Landauer scattering theory. We observe antiferromagnetically coupled edge states in the graphene nanosheet, which may lead to spin-polarized currents. We analyze how they depend on the position of the electrodes and on applied transverse electric fields. Our ab-initio results are rationalized with the help of a Hubbard model.
