Abstract

We report a density functional theory study of the electronic and transport properties of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with attached organic molecules, such as napthalene of aromatic group, at the edge. The zigzag GNRs considered in this study are doped at (i) central and (ii) edge of scattering region of the nanoribbons with boron and nitrogen atom. These nanostructures are described using a single-band tight-binding Hamiltonian and their transport spectrum and density of states are calculated within the Greens function formalism
