Electronic Transport in Dual-gated Bilayer Graphene at Large Displacement Fields
Thiti Taychatanapat, Pablo Jarillo-Herrero
We study the electronic transport properties of dual-gated bilayer graphene devices. We focus on the regime of low temperatures and high electric displacement fields, where we observe a clear exponential dependence of the resistance as a function of displacement field and density, accompanied by a strong non-linear behavior in the transport characteristics. The effective transport gap is typically two orders of magnitude smaller than the optical band gaps reported by infrared spectroscopy studies. Detailed temperature dependence measurements shed light on the different transport mechanisms in different temperature regimes.
