An introduction to graphene and carbon nanotubes / John Edward Proctor, Daniel Alfonso Melendrez Armada, and Aravind Vijayaraghavan
- Inter-atomic bonding in graphene and diamond -- Electronic dispersion relation of graphene -- Advanced considerations on the electronic dispersion relation of graphene -- Electronic dispersion relation of single-walled carbon nanotubes -- Phonons in graphene and single-walled carbon nanotubes -- Raman spectra of graphene and carbon nanotubes -- Diffraction and microscopy experiments on graphene and carbon nanotubes -- Preparation and processing of graphene and SWCNT -- Thermal and mechanical properties of graphene and SWCNT -- Chemical modification of graphene -- Current topics in graphene and carbon nanotube research.
- "This book introduces the reader to the science of graphene and carbon nanotubes. The reader will gain the basic scientific knowledge to critically evaluate the claims made in the literature and in the public arena about the physical properties and potential for applications of graphene and carbon nanotubes. In addition, the book uses these simple systems as excellent models to demonstrate important concepts in solid state physics and materials chemistry to the reader. The book is co-authored by one of the leaders in public engagement at the National Graphene Institute at Manchester University, which was founded in honour of the Nobel Laureate Sir Andre Geim"--
