Graphene is a one-atom-thick planar sheet of sp2-bonded carbon atoms that are densely packed in a honeycomb crystal lattice. The term Graphene was coined as a combination of graphite and the suffix -ene by Hanns-Peter Boehm, who described single-layer carbon foils in 1962. Graphene is most easily visualized as an atomic-scale chicken wire made of carbon atoms and their bonds. The crystalline or "flake" form of graphite consists of many graphene sheets stacked together.

Modeling of Inter-ribbon Tunneling in Graphene
11 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Maarten Van de Put, William Gerard Hubert Vandenberghe, Massimo V Fischetti
IWCE presentation. In this paper we investigate the finite-size effect in nano-scaled graphene flakes. Improving on the bulk description, and because the structures are – atomistically speaking – large in size, we use the empirical pseudopotential method.
