Studying the flow of electrons in 2-D materials View Presentation
2-dimensional materials are of great interest in fundamental science and applications. There have been extensive studies on monolayer graphene where unique properties result from the symmetry of the honeycomb lattice. Few layer graphene systems are of interest as they offer interesting opportunities to study the effect of electronic interactions while monolayer graphene was largely understood in terms of independent electron picture. In addition, few layer graphene offer an opportunity to break simple symmetries and study their consequence.
