Thermodynamics of electron-hole liquids in graphene

  • L. A. Falkovsky
Condensed Matter


The impact of Coulomb interactions on the chemical potential, heat capacity, and oscillating magnetic moment is studied. The cases of low and high temperatures are considered. At low temperatures, doped graphene behaves as the common Fermi liquids with the power temperature laws for thermodynamic properties. However, at high temperatures and relatively low carrier concentrations, it exhibits the collective electron-hole behavior: the chemical potential tends to its value in the undoped case going with the temperature to the charge neutrality point. Simultaneously, the electron contribution into the heat capacity tends to the constant value as in the case of the Boltzmann statistics.
