Abstract

This presentation will address the broad tunability of quantum transport in disordered graphene (from polycrystalline graphene, defected and amorphous graphene, to functionalized graphene (hydrogenated or oxidized)), giving the typical transport length scales (mean free path, localization lengths) of interest, and showing in which circumstances pseudospin-related interference effects remain robust to a particular form of disorder. Next, the effects of spin-orbit coupling on spin relaxation mechanisms will be discussed, with reported anomalously short spin relaxation times (or lengths) in quasiballistic transport regimes. The applicability limits of Elliot-Yaffet and Dyakonov-Perel scaling relationships between spin relaxation and elastic scattering times to graphene will be outlined.
