Surface solitons at the edges of graphene nanoribbons
We demonstrate numerically that armchair graphene nanoribbons can support vibrational localized states in the form of surface solitons. Such localized states appear through self-localization of the vibrational energy along the edge of the graphene nanoribbon, and they decay rapidly inside the structure. We find five types of such solitary waves including in-plane and out-of-plane edge breathers and moving envelope solitons.
