Description
We propose a route to all-graphene integrated electronic devices by exploring the influence of strain on the electronic structure of graphene. We show that strain can be easily tailored to generate electron beam collimation, 1D channels, surface states and confinement, the basic elements for all-graphene electronics. In addition this proposal has the advantage that patterning can be made on substrates rather than on the graphene sheet, thereby protecting the integrity of the latter.
