Abstract

We suggest a general approach based on the nearest-neighbor tight-binding approximation (TB) to investigate the band structure and conductance of a quasi-one dimensional system. Numerical calculations carried out for Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with different widths and edge conditions (zigzag and armchair) reveal the well-known results that the electronic properties of GNRs depend strongly on the size and geometry of the sample.
