Abstract: Graphene has proven to be an ideal system for exotic transport phenomena. In this work, we report another exotic characteristic of the electron transport in graphene. Namely, we show that the linearregime conductance can present self-similar patterns with well-defined scaling rules, once the graphene sheet is subjected to Cantor-like nanostructuring. As far as we know the mentioned system is one of the few in which a self-similar structure produces self-similar patterns on a physical property. These patterns are analysed quantitatively, by obtaining the scaling rules that underlie them. It is worth noting that the transport properties are an average of the dispersion channels, which makes the existence of scale factors quite surprising. In addition, that self-similarity be manifested in the conductance opens an excellent opportunity to test this fundamental property experimentally.
