Magnetic quantum ratchet effect in graphene : Nature Nanotechnology : Nature Publishing Group
Interesting research, basically making a magnetic quantum ratchet out of graphene, effectively making an AC/DC rectifier. But, they used a 7 tesla mag field and a 3.34THz AC input (between IR and microwave), so not entirely practical. But, infrared nanoantennas have a need for rectifying their AC output and they are currently manufactured in the IR range, so if you can somehow provide the necessary mag field, that might be the trick to make it work...
