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.

Coupled Effect of Strain and Magnetic Field on Electronic Bandstructure of Graphene
03 Dec 2010 | | Contributor(s):: yashudeep singh
We explore the possibility of coupling between planar strain and perpendicular magnetic field on electronic bandstructure of graphene. We study uni-axially, bi-axially and shear strained graphene under magnetic field. In line with Rammal’s formalism using nearest neighbor tight binding scheme we...
