DescriptionOptical Properties of Graphene in Magnetic and Electric Fields provides a synthesis of up-to-date research on the optical properties of graphene, drawing from both experimental and theoretical research. The focus is primarily on multilayer graphenes with a focus on Landau-level spectra and the generalised tight-binding model. The interplay between external fields and the geometric configuration determines relationships between the components of wave functions in different sublattices. This leads to an observation that the optical properties display a strong dependence on the stacking configuration and the number of layers. In general, this model can reasonably comprehend the quantisation effect in arbitrarily stacked graphenes as well as other layered 2D materials such as MoS2 and silicene. Comparisons between theoretical and experimental work are drawn, as are the different graphene synthesis methods.
Chiun-Yan Lin, Thi-Nga Do, Yao-Kung Huang and Ming-Fa Lin are all based at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan where they collaborate in theoretical solid state physics research and in particular properties of 2D materials.
