Abstract: This paper presents a theoretical study of the effect of transverse electric potentials on the transport properties of armchair graphene nanoribbons (AGNRs), formed by pairs of asymmetric gates placed along the side of the ribbon. Single-pair and dual-pair configurations are considered. The effect of hollows (spatial regions void of carbon atoms) in the AGNR channels is also examined. The use of hollowed AGNRs in the dual-pair configuration allows for significant modulation of the transport gap when the two pairs have opposite gate bias polarity. Furthermore, for the dual-gate system, hollowed AGNR channels exhibit the optimal ratio of on-state to off-state conductance, due to the smaller off-state conductance compared with spatially homogenous AGNR channels. Our results indicate that transverse gate technology coupled with careful engineering of hollow geometry may lead to possible applications in graphene-based electronic devices. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
