Abstract

If bilayer graphene is placed in a strong perpendicular magnetic field, several quantum Hall plateaux are observed at low enough temperatures. Of these, the σxy=4ne2/h sequence (n≠0) is explained by standard Landau quantization, while the other integer plateaux arise due to interactions. The low-energy excitations in both cases are magnetoexcitons, whose dispersion relation depends on single- and many-body effects in a complicated manner. Analyzing the magnetoexciton modes in bilayer graphene, we find that the mixing of different Landau level transitions not only renormalizes them, but essentially changes their spectra and orbital character at finite wavelength. These predictions can be probed in inelastic light scattering experiments.
