  1. A few topics in Graphene physicsAntonio H. Castro Neto San Sebastian, May 2008

  2. Outline • Coulomb impurity in graphene Vitor M. Pereira, Johan Nilsson, Valeri Kotov Phys.Rev.Lett. 99, 166802 (2007); arXiv:0803.4195 • Anderson impurity in graphene Bruno Uchoa, Chiung-Yuan Lin, Valeri Kotov, Nuno Peres Phys.Rev.B 77, 035420 (2008)‏; arXiv:0802.1711

  5. Pereira et al., Phys.Rev.Lett. 99, 166802 (2007);

  6. Coupling 3D Schroedinger

  7. Undercritical Supercritical

  8. Andrei’s group

  9. HIC Neutron stars

  10. E N(E) Anderson’s Impurity Model

  11. Non-interacting: U=0 V=0 Broadening Energy Energy

  12. Mean-Field

  13. U = 1 eV n_up n_down V=1eV, e0=0.2 eV The impurity moment can be switched on and off!

  14. U = 40 meV U = 0.1 eV

  15. Conclusions • Impurities in graphene behave in an unusual way when compared to normal metals and semiconductors. • One can test theories of nuclear matter under extreme conditions. • Control of the magnetic moment formation of transition metals using electric fields.
