Graphene, the wonder material

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: Graphene has attracted a great interest in material science due to its novel electronic structures. Owing to this unusual electronic spectrum, Graphene has led to the emergence of a new branch of 'relativistic condensed-matter physics, where quantum relativistic phenomena, some of which are unobservable in high energy physics, can be simulated and tested in the laboratories. More generally, Graphene represents a conceptually new class of materials that are only one atom thick and offers new opportunities into low dimensional physics. Magnetism discovered in Graphene based systems opens up the possibility of their spintronics application. Theoretical and experimental studies suggest that such magnetism in Graphene mainly comes from the localized states or edges states. This paper provides an outline on the electronic structures and magnetic behaviors of 2-dimensional Graphene and its possible applications.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
