Tabby graphene: Dimensional magnetic crossover in fluorinated graphite Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Tabby is a pattern of short irregular stripes, usually related to domestic cats. We have produced Tabby patterns on graphene by attaching fluorine atoms running as monoatomic chains in crystallographic directions. Separated by non-fluorinated sp 2 carbon ribbons, sp 3-hybridized carbon atoms bonded to zigzag fluorine chains produce sp 2-sp 3 interfaces and spin-polarized edge states localized on both sides of the chains. We have compared two kinds of fluorinated graphite samples C 2 F x, with x near to 1 and x …
