Abstract

We calculate the orbital diamagnetic susceptibility of monolayer graphene with an energy gap. The valley pseudo-spin produces paramagnetic susceptibility analogous to contribution from real spin, and explains the origin of a singular orbital magnetism at Dirac point of monolayer graphene.
