Generation of valley polarized current in graphene using quantum adiabatic pumping
Jing Wang and K.S. Chan

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    We study a device structure which can be used to generate pure valley current and valley polarized current using quantum adiabatic pumping. The design of the structure allows the flexibility of changing the structure from one for pure valley current generation to one for valley polarized current generation by changing the applied electric potentials through changing the symmetry of the structure. The device is useful for the development of valleytronic devices.
