Abstract: Magnetically doped graphene has great potential for applications in spintronics, in which local magnetic moments are coupled by the Rudermann-Kittel-Kasuya-Yosida (RKKY) interaction. RKKY interaction in graphene has attracted intensive interest. However, previous studies only show the features of the RKKY interaction dictated by energy dispersion, leaving the effect of the geometric nature of electronic structures unexplored. Here, we focus on the short-range oscillation behaviors of RKKY interaction contributed by intervalley scattering. Due to the unique geometric nature of electronic structures, two wavefront dislocations emerge in the RKKY interaction corresponding to winding number 1 of graphene. We further demonstrate the robustness of wavefront dislocations against the doping, trigonal warping, and gap opening of energy bands. This study reveals a unique feature for the RKKY interaction and implies the importance of the geometric nature of electronic structures for magnetism.
