The quantum capacitance of graphene can be negative when the graphene is placed in a strong magnetic field, which is a clear experimental signature of positional correlations between electrons. Here we show that the quantum capacitance of graphene is also strongly affected by its dielectric polarizability, which in a magnetic field is wave-vector dependent. We study this effect both theoretically and experimentally. We develop a theory and numerical procedure for accounting for the graphene dielectric response, and we present measurements of the quantum capacitance of high-quality graphene capacitors on boron nitride. Theory and experiment are found to be in good agreement.
