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.

Carbon-Based Nanoswitch Logic
28 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen A. Campbell
This talk discusses a rather surprising possibility: the use of carbon-based materials such as carbon nanotubes and grapheneto make nanomechanical switches with at least an order of magnitude lower power dissipation than the low power CMOS options and performance between the various CMOS...
Chemically Enhanced Carbon-Based Nanomaterials and Devices
09 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Hersam
Carbon-based nanomaterials have attracted significant attention due to their potential to enable and/or improve applications such as transistors, transparent conductors, solar cells, batteries, and biosensors. This talk will delineate chemical strategies for enhancing the electronic and optical...

Electronic and Vibrational Properties of 2D Materials from Monolayer to Bulk: Opportunity Unlimited
21 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Mahesh R Neupane
IWCE 2015 invited presentation. The placement of two dimensional (2D) materials such as hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) and transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC) at the forefront of materials and device research was pioneered by the discovery of graphene, an atomically thin 2D allotrope of...
Energy Dissipation at the Nanoscale: from graphene to phase-change materials
20 Dec 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Pop
This talk will present recent highlights from our studies of dissipation in novel nanoelectronics based on graphene and phase-change materials. We have investigated both Joule heating and Peltier cooling in graphene electronics, and found that the latter could be tuned to partially remove the...

How to Turn Graphene into a Robust Topological Insulator Using Adatoms
12 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Jason Alicea
In this talk I will discuss a recent proposal for generating a robust TI state in a more readily available two-dimensional system -- graphene.
Is Graphene Alone in the Universe?
05 Dec 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob B. Khurgin
In this talk we show that many heterostructures based on III-V (InGaSb) and II-VI (HgCdTe) semiconductors can be engineered to have all the above properties nearly indistinguishable from those of graphene, while adding certain degree of versatility, such as ability to have not only 2-dimensional,...
Journey Along the Carbon Road
19 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Zhihong Chen
I will discuss two distinct topics: In the first part of my talk I will present results on carbon nanotubes focusing on high performance computing with the aim to replace silicon in logic device applications. Specifically, the ballistic transport regime that has been reached with the shortest...

Levitated Spinning Graphene
18 Jan 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Bruce E. Kane
I will describe a method for levitating micron-sized few layer graphene flakes in a quadrupole ion trap. Starting from a liquid suspension containing graphene, charged flakes are injected into the trap using the electrospray ionization technique and are probed optically.
Many Body Effects on Optical Properties of Graphene
13 Oct 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Subhasis Ghosh
Graphene, a two-dimensional (2D) material shows remarkable optical and electronic properties, such as a linear energy dispersion, chirality and half-integer quantum Hall effect. Multilayer graphene flakes, held together by weak van der Waals forces have also attracted attention due to...
