The spin-polarized ν=0\nu=0 state of graphene: a spin superconductor

Abstract

We study the spin-polarized ν=0\nu=0 Landau-level state of graphene. Due to the electron-hole attractive interaction, electrons and holes can bound into pairs. These pairs can then condense into a spin-triplet superfluid ground state: a spin superconductor state. In this state, a gap opens up in the edge bands as well as in the bulk bands, thus it is a charge insulator, but it can carry the spin current without dissipation. These results can well explain the insulating behavior of the spin-polarized ν=0\nu=0 state in the recent experiments.Comment: 6 pages, 4 figure
