Gate-controllable graphene superlattices: Numerical aspects — •Szu-Chao Chen, Wun-Hao Kang, and Ming-Hao Liu — Department of Physics, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan
We study transport properties of gate-controllable graphene superlattices by performing quantum transport simulations based on the scalable tight-binding model and calculations of miniband structures within the continuum method . Good agreement between transport simulations and the corresponding miniband structures confirms the reliability of our calculations for electrostatic superlattices in graphene. Combined with realistic potential profiles obtained from finite-element-based electrostatic simulations, our transport simulations agree well with recent transport experiments for gate-controllable square superlattices. This work therefore paves the way toward exploring gate-controllable graphene superlattices of arbitrary lattices, such as honeycomb or Lieb.
