An introduction to the transport properties of graphene combining experimental results and theoretical analysis is presented. In the theoretical description simple intuitive models are used to illustrate important points on the transport properties of graphene. The concept of chirality, stemming from the massless Dirac nature of the low energy physics of the material, is shown to be instrumental in understanding its transport properties: the conductivity minimum, the electronic mobility, the… Expand

Excitonic effects in the optical conductivity of gated graphene.
It is shown that excitonic resonances are responsible for several features of the experimentally measured midinfrared response of graphene such as the increase of the conductivity beyond the universal value above the Fermi blocked regime, the broadening of the absorption at the threshold, and the decrease of the optical conductivity at higher frequencies.
