Abstract:
Carbon is one of the most versatile materials available to man, for hundreds of years the 3D forms of carbon (diamond and graphite) have been exploited for their electrical and physical properties, however only in recent decades have the OD (fullerenes), 1D (nanotubes) and 2D (graphene) forms of carbon been available to study and use for new technologies. The experimental realisation of single layer (SLG) and few layer (FLG) graphene has led to an explosion of interest in the properties and capabilities of this material. Although single layer graphene had been considered theoretically a number of years earlier, it had long been the consensus that a single atom thick material would not be stable in the free state.
