Özet. Bu çalışmada, elektronların akustik fononlar ile etkileşmesinden kaynaklanan kiral polaron oluşumu incelenmiştir. Elektron-fonon sistemlerinin taban durumunu hesaplayabilmek için Lee-Low-Pines teorisi çerçevesinde analitik bir metot geliştirilmiştir. Grafenin dejenere band yapısının kiral polaron oluşumunu desteklediği tespit edilmiştir

Abstract. In this study, chiral polaron formation due to interactions of the electrons with acoustic phonon was investigated. In order to calculate fround states of the electron-phonon systems, an analytical method was developed within the frame of Lee-Low-Pines theory. It was identiffcated that degenerate band structure supports the chiral polaron formation.


Graphene, electron, acoustic phonon, chiral polaron.
