Abstract


We discuss the difficulties in discovering the Kondo effect in the resistivity of graphene. Similarly to the Kondo effect, electron-electron interaction effects and weak localization appear as logarithmic corrections to the resistance. In order to disentangle these contributions, a refined analysis of the magnetoconductance and the magnetoresistance is introduced. We present numerical simulations which display the discrimination of both effects. Further, we present experimental data of magnetotransport. When magnetic molecules are added to graphene, a logarithmic correction to the conductance occurs, which apparently suggests Kondo physics. Our thorough evaluation scheme, however, reveals that this interpretation is not conclusive: The data can be equally explained by electron-electron interaction corrections in an inhomogeneous sample. Despite our refined analysis, we conclude that additional spectroscopic information will be necessary to unambiguously identify the Kondo effect. © 2013 American Physical Society.
