Abstract: A dual-gated ultra-thin graphene field effect transistor (GFET) suitable for electronic sensing application is modelled. The applied simulation approach reproduces accurately the transport properties of the GFET characteristics and enables investigation of the influence of the different physical, biological and chemical factors. The simulation readouts and additional charges in the system are interpreted in the form of current-voltage characteristics and shift in Dirac peaks. These features could be extracted to predict the sensing mechanism of the GFET.

Keywords: graphene; graphene field effect transistor; GFET; sensor; current-voltage characteristics.
