Spontaneous transverse field in impurity graphene


The periodic Anderson model and the average electron method are used to show that an electric field normal to an applied dc electric field can spontaneously appear in impurity-containing graphene. This effect can be related to a nonequilibrium electron subsystem in graphene. The characteristics of the spontaneous field are revealed as a function of the problem parameters.
