Electronic Structure of Ribbons

  1. Nov 24, 2015 #1
    I know how to calculate band structure of two dimensionaI sheets by tight binding. I am looking for a reference to learn thoroughly how to calculate band structure of 2d-ribbons (Graphene nanoribbon, Silicene nanoribbon,...) using tight binding method. Could anyone please help me?

    When calculating the band structure of graphene you assume it's infinite in extent through the Bloch Theorem. Decide how wide you want the nanoribbon to be and whether you want armchair or zigzag edges. It may be easier to work out some DFT code.

    Yes. Of course. I am looking a very comprehensive tutorial for obtaining electronic structures using full analytical methods.
