Electronic Transport Properties of Trigonal Graphene Nanoribbon with Different Edge Termination
Physics and Information Engineering Department, Jining University, Qufu, China
The electronic transport properties of trigonal graphene nanoribbon with different edge termination are studied with the first principle methods. It is found that edge termination plays an important role in electronic transport in these systems. The current of Fe-terminated nanoribbon increases more than two orders of magnitude compared with that of H-terminated systems. The reason of the current enhancement is attributed to the change of transmission spectra in the presence of different edge termination.
