Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms packed in a honeycomb lattice. At low energy, the dispersion relation is linear. Such peculiarity gives rise to unique and sometime counterintuitive electronic properties.
Our group aims to study the fundamental electrical properties and the potential applications of devices based on this truly two-dimensional crystal. Our graphene devices are characterized in many different ways from room down to millikelvin temperatures. This research project was funded by "Concept for the future" of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology within the framework of the German Excellence Initiative and now by the Helmholtz society. Our group benefits from internal as well as international collaborations (including China, Finland, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, UK, USA, …).
