2D Graphene: a. With the p z basis and 2x2 matrix Hamiltonian used in class, calculate and plot the bandstructure along Γ -K-M- Γ . Also plot the expectation values of σ x and σ y for the conduction band wavefunction in the first BZ. b. Extend the Hamiltonian to include the s, p x and p y orbitals on both A and B sublattice sites, leading to an 8x8 matrix. Because the nearest-neighbor

Unformatted text preview: vectors are not orthogonal, you must remember to trigonometrically decompose the overlap matrix elements into and bonds! Recalculate the bandstructure. [One set of overlap parameters is V ss = 4.80, V sp = 4.75, V pp = 4.39, and V pp = 2.56 eV (Phys. Rev. B 70 , 115407 (2004))]...
