Abstract: Geometric and electronic properties of folded graphene nanoribbons (FGNRs) are investigated by first-principles calculations. These properties are mainly dominated by the competition or cooperation among stacking, curvature and edge effects.For the zigzag FGNRs, the more stable structures are revealed to be AB stackings, while for the armchair types, AA stackings are more stable. The interlayer interactions and hybridization of four orbitals lead to smaller energy gaps, anti-crossing bands, and more band-e…
