Graphene and silicon are two prominent lithium-ion battery anode materials that have recently received a lot of attention. In this paper we have modelled and simulated the charge transport phenomena in Graphene on Si / SiO2 and SrTiO3 substrates. The Graphene monolayer's interface with the SrTiO3 (111) surface is analyzed using ab initio density-functional measurements. Both charge and heat flows are produced in solids, at the same time when an electrochemical potential is available, bringing about novel properties. The band structure and the electron dissolution process decide the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity. It has been discovered that the interaction of Graphene with SiTiO3 accommodates electronic properties, Seebeck coefficient, and electronic conductivity. For the Graphene / SrTiO3 interface, the best values for the Seebeck coefficient were calculated. All the findings of this work suggest that the Graphene-SrTiO3 (111) and Graphene-Si structure could exhibit interesting quantum transport behavior.
