Recently a paper of Klimovskikh et al. was published presenting experimental and theoretical analysis of the graphene/Pb/Pt(111) system. The authors investigate the crystallographic and electronic structure of this graphene-based system by means of LEED, ARPES, and spin-resolved PES of the graphene $\pi$ states in the vicinity of the Dirac point of graphene. The authors of this paper demonstrate that an energy gap of approx. 200 meV is opened in the spectral function of graphene directly at the…
