          Abstract

          Graphene is a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice. It was first obtained by exfoliation of graphite in 2004 and has since evolved into a thriving research topic because of its attractive mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. Graphene's unique electrical properties derive from the relativistic nature of its quasiparticles, resulting in exceptionally high electron mobility. Graphene promises to revolutionize many applications, ranging from solar cells and light-emitting devices to touch screens, photodetectors, microwave transistors, and ultrafast lasers.
