Abstract (English)

In this Thesis we explain the relatively large splitting in intrinsic graphene by using tight-binding method. We include the relevant $s$, $p$, and $d$ orbitals and obtain the orbital couplings necessary to account for the splitting by fitting the tight-binding model to first-principles alculations. Our formula for the intrinsic splitting shows that while the contribution from the spin-orbit ...
