Nonlinear electric transport in graphene with magnetic disorder

Abstract

The influence of magnetic impurities on the transport properties of graphene is investigated in the regime of strong applied electric fields. As a result of electron-hole pair creation, the response becomes nonlinear and dependent on the magnetic polarization. In the paramagnetic phase, time reversal symmetry is statistically preserved, and transport properties are similar to the clean case. At variance, in the antiferromagnetic phase, the system undergoes a transition between a superdiffusive to a subdiffusive spreading of a wave packet, signaling the development of localized states. This critical regime is characterized by the appearance of electronic states with a multifractal geometry near the gap. The local density of states concentrates in large patches having a definite charge-spin correlation. In this state, the conductivity tends to half the minimum conductivity of clean graphene.
