2 Problem 1: The energy-momentum relation for electrons in graphene are written in the form E ( p ) = ν 0 p where is a constant. Consider a large two-dimensional channel with dimensions L, W made of such a material. Find the density of states D(E). ˜ N ( p ) = π WL ( p / h ) 2 ˜ N ( E ) = WL h 2 0 2 E 2 D ( E ) = 2 WL h 2 0 2 E

3 Problem 2: At low temperatures, the conductance of a ballistic conductor is given by G = q 2 h ˜ M ( E = μ 0 ) while the electron density is given by n s = N ( E = 0 ) / LW , assuming a 2-D conductor with dimensions L, W. Find a general expression relating the conductance per unit width to the electron density, that is valid for any energy-momentum relation.
