We report on the experimental observation of the magnetic quantum ratchet effect in epitaxial- and CVD- grown graphene layers excited by pulsed terahertz (THz ) - laser radiation [1]. Our experimental findings can be well understood in terms of asymmetric carrier scattering in graphene in presence of an in-plane magnetic field yielding strong structure inversion asymmetry (SIA) in graphene. The SIA stems from the fact that graphene is deposited on a substrate and/or is sensitive to chemical bonding of adatoms on the surface. Considering hydrogen atoms on top of carbon we calculated the magnitude of the photocurrent being in good agreement with the data obtained from the experiments. The amplitudes of the current differ significantly for the used material systems whereas its sign can be influenced by the post-groth treatment of the samples. The ratchet current can be calibrated to measure the strength of the SIA, which plays an important role in graphene ferromagnetism and spintronics.
