The calculated band gaps of the AGNRs vary continually over a range of 1.6 eV as a function of a percentage of s p3 -like bonds at the edges. This provides a simple way for band gap engineering of graphene as the relative stability of s p2 and s p3 -like bonds at the edges of the AGNRs depends on the chemical potential of hydrogen gas, and the composition of the s p2 and s p3 -like bonds at the edges of the AGNRs can be easily controlled experimentally via temperature and pressure of H2 gas. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.||Source Title:||Applied Physics Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/76032||ISSN:||00036951||DOI:||10.1063/1.3103551|
