Electronic properties of multilayer graphene



Hongki Min


In this chapter, we study the electronic structure of arbitrarily stacked multilayer graphene in the absence or presence of magnetic field. Energy band structure and Landau level spectrum are obtained using a pi-orbital continuum model with nearest-neighbor intralayer and interlayer tunneling terms. Using degenerate state perturbation theory, we analyze the low-energy effective theory and show that the low-energy electronic structure of arbitrarily stacked graphene multilayers consists of chiral pseudospin doublets with a conserved chirality sum. We discuss its implications in Quantum Hall effect, optical conductivity, transport conductivity and pseudospin magnetism.
