Physics of graphene: Basic to FET application

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms that are arranged in a twodimensional honeycomb network. Since the successful isolation of graphene in 2004, its peculiar nature has been extensively studied. The linear dispersion relation, which is described by the massless Dirac equation, induces striking phenomena explained by relativistic quantum physics. In addition, the carrier mobility of graphene considerably exceeds that of silicon, which makes graphene a promising material for future electronics. This chapter aims at introducing the basic properties of graphene concisely to a broad readership. After summarizing the development of the study on graphene briefly, we provide the theoretical description of the electronic properties and experimental procedures to study graphene field-effect transistor (FET). Finally, two methods for carrier doping in graphene are discussed based on our recent study.
