Physics Talk on Graphene and Two-dimensional Electronic Materials October 8

“Flatland Redux: Graphene and other Two-Dimensional Electronic Materials” will be presented at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, October 8, in Witmer Hall, room 211 by David Campbell, Department of Physics, Boston University.

Graphene is a remarkable material, consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms bonded to each other in a hexagonal pattern extending in principle in an infinite, flat two-dimensional membrane. Its structure and basic properties were modeled theoretically already in the 1940s, but its isolation in truly single layer form in 2004 by Geim and Novolsev using the “scotch tape” method ignited an explosion of interest and led to the awarding of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics to these researchers.
