    Graphene has two kinds of edges which have different electronic properties. A singular electronic state emerges at zigzag edges, while it disappears at armchair edges. We study the edge-dependent transport properties in few-layer graphene by applying a side gate voltage to the edge with an ionic liquid. The devices indicating a conductance peak at the charge neutrality point have zigzag edges, confirmed by micro-Raman spectroscopy mapping. The hopping transport between zigzag edges increases the conductance.
