dc.description.abstract We propose a quantum pump mechanism based on the particular properties of graphene, namely chirality and bipolarity. The underlying physics is the excitation of evanescent modes entering a potential barrier from one lead, while those from the other lead do not reach the driving region. This induces a large nonequilibrium current with electrons stemming from a broad range of energies, in contrast to the narrow resonances that govern the corresponding effect in semiconductor heterostructures. Moreover, the pump mechanism in graphene turns out to be robust, with a simple parameter dependence, which is beneficial for applications. Numerical results from a Floquet scattering formalism are complemented with analytical solutions for small to moderate driving en_US
