Quantum Hall Effect in Chemically Functionalized Graphene: Defect-Induced Critical States and Breakdown of Electron-Hole Symmetry — •Nicolas Leconte1,2, Jean-Christophe Charlier2, and Stephan Roche11ICN2 - Institut Catala de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia, Campus UAB, 08193 Bellaterra (Barcelona), Spain — 2Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Institute of Condensed Matter and Nanoscience (IMCN), Chemin des étoiles 8, 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Unconventional magneto-transport fingerprints in the quantum Hall regime (with applied magnetic field from one to several tens of Tesla) in chemically functionnalized graphene are reported. Upon chemical adsorption of monoatomic oxygen (from 0.5% to few percents), the electron-hole symmetry of Landau levels is broken, while a double-peaked conductivity develops at low-energy, resulting from the formation of critical states conveyed by the random network of defects-induced impurity states. Scaling analysis suggests an additional zero-energy quantized Hall conductance plateau, which is here not connected to degeneracy lifting of Landau levels by sublattice symmetry breakage. This singularly contrasts with usual interpretation, and unveils a new playground for tailoring the fundamental characteristics of the quantum Hall effect. The study on oxygen is complemented with a study on a simplified divacancy model, confirming the percolation of impurity states leading to delocalized states.
