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.

  1. Thermal Transport in Layered Materials, Devices, and Systems

    11 Apr 2024 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Pop

    The thermal properties of layered materials (like graphene and MoS2) are an active area of investigation, particularly due to their anisotropic and tunable thermal conductivity. We have studied their behavior as part of transistors, where self-heating is a major challenge for performance and...

  9. Fusing Light With Heat: Polaritons for Nanoscale Thermal Transport & Sensing

    07 Oct 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Thomas Beechem

    Light exhibits a wave nature.  Phonons do too.  Within the infrared portion of the spectrum, these differing “waves” can interact to form hybrid energy carriers called polaritons.  Polaritons, in turn, provide fundamental advantages for optical functionality and...
