A review. Graphene is a rapidly rising star on the horizon of materials science and condensed-matter physics. This strictly two-dimensional material exhibits exceptionally high crystal and electronic quality, and, despite its short history, has already revealed a cornucopia of new physics and potential applications, which are briefly discussed here. Whereas one can be certain of the realness of applications only when com. Owing to its unusual electronic spectrum, graphene has led to the emergence of a new paradigm of 'relativistic' condensed-matter physics, where quantum relativistic phenomena, some of which are unobservable in high-energy physics, can now be mimicked and tested in table-top expts.
More generally, graphene represents a conceptually new class of materials that are only one atom thick, and, on this basis, offers new inroads into low-dimensional physics that has never ceased to surprise and continues to provide a fertile ground for applications. Nature , , — , DOI: Quantum electrodynamics resulting from the merger of quantum mechanics and relativity theory has provided a clear understanding of phenomena ranging from particle physics to cosmol. The ideas underlying quantum electrodynamics also influence the theory of condensed matter, but quantum relativistic effects are usually minute in the known exptl.

However, its behavior is expected to differ markedly from the well-studied case of quantum wells in conventional semiconductor interfaces.

Graphene showed great application potential as the host material for next-generation electronic devices. However, despite its intriguing properties, one of the biggest hurdles for graphene to be useful as an electronic material is the lack of an energy gap in its electronic spectra. This, for example, prevents the use of graphene in making transistors.
Although several proposals were made to open a gap in graphene's electronic spectra, they all require complex engineering of the graphene layer. This gap decreases as the sample thickness increases and eventually approaches zero when the no. Probably the origin of this gap is the breaking of sublattice symmetry owing to the graphene-substrate interaction. Probably the authors' results highlight a promising direction for bandgap engineering of graphene. B , 76 , DOI: Giovannetti, Gianluca; Khomyakov, Petr A. We det. The most stable configuration has one carbon atom on top of a boron atom, and the other centered above a BN ring.

Alternative orientations of the graphene sheet on the BN substrate generate similar band gaps and masses. The band gap induced by the BN surface can greatly improve room temp.
