Abstract

We study the electronic properties in few-layer graphenes (FLGs) classified by even/odd layer number n. FLGs with even n have only parabolic energy dispersions, whereas FLGs with odd n have a linear dispersion besides parabolic ones. This difference leads to a distinct density of states in FLGs, experimentally confirmed by the gate-voltage dependence of the electric double-layer capacitance. Thus, FLGs with odd n are unique materials that have relativistic carriers originating in linear energy dispersion.
