In bilayer graphene, the A and B sites in each layer have different local electronic structures due to the presence of the second layer. In this work, using first-principles calculations, we examine the effect of sublattice inequivalence on various properties of hydrogen defects in bilayer graphene. Density functional calculations show that induced magnetic moments by H adsorption on A and B sites of bilayer graphene are both equal to 1 µB at zero temperature, but change slightly and develop a mismatch at finite temperature. We show how this variation follows from the fact that H on A site remains gapless but H on B site opens an energy gap. We also use a tight-binding model to explain the differences in band structures for H adsorption on A and B sites. The results obtained in this work suggest that there are important differences in electronic and magnetic properties between H adsorption on monolayer and bilayer graphene.
