We study the low-energy electronic structure of massless and massive zigzag graphene nanoribbons and the effect due to edge and bulk model perturbations. We consider also the presence of a uniform magnetic field threading the ribbons and the induced energy splitting of the two Dirac valleys. The emergence of energy gaps and valley asymmetry enriches the perspectives of novel devices based on relativistic-like carriers.

Abstract

We study the low-energy electronic structure of massless and massive zigzag graphene nanoribbons and the effect due to edge and bulk model perturbations. We consider also the presence of a uniform magnetic field threading the ribbons and the induced energy splitting of the two Dirac valleys. The emergence of energy gaps and valley asymmetry enriches the perspectives of novel devices based on relativistic-like carriers.
