The Ehrenberg–Siday–Aharonov–Bohm effect in graphene rings

The Ehrenberg–Siday–Aharonov–Bohm effect in graphene rings Quantum interference in mesoscopic ring structures based on graphene can be influenced by external magnetic field. As was first predicted by Ehrenberg and Siday in 1949, a magnetic field piercing a ring creates vector-potential along the ring, which changes the phase of the electronic de Broglie waves. This effect has now been confirmed by experiments on graphene rings. Graphene is a novel material, which brought a Nobel prize to Novoselov and Geim, who discovered it. Novel, graphene-specific features discovered on graphene rings include so-called Klein tunneling and specular Andreev reflection.

  • The cylindrical superstructures are composed of silver nanoparticles with V-shaped amphiphilic arms. The short rod-like and spherical assemblies are made of gold nanoparticles with the same V-shaped amphiphilic arms.  The self-assembly occurs upon slow addition of water to solution of nanoparticles in organic solvent called tetrahydrofuran. The resulting mixture is then dialyzed against pure water in order to remove organic solvent and obtain a pure aqueous solution of the superstructures (they remain in water without any precipitation, just like micelles).
