Textbooks on Graphene

The discovery of graphene in 2004, which was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010, has opened a fascinating research area on two-dimensional (2D) materials – the materials that are atomically thin. For more than a decade, much of the physics of these materials has been achieved. Many textbooks and handbooks on graphene and […]

Articles on 2D materials and vdW heterostructures

Here are some nice articles on 2D materials and vdW heterostructures. These papers sketch a prospective and review of these material systems: “Van der Waals heterostructures” by A. K. Geim and I. V. Grigorieva in Nature on 24 July 2013. “2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures“ by K. S. Novoselov, A. Mishchenko, A. Carvalho, A. H. Castro Neto in […]
