  • Graphite is usually considered as a layered semimetal composed of the graphene monolayers. Within this assumption, the graphite electron spectrum was evaluated many years ago within the Slonczewski–Weiss–McClure (SWM) theory 1 . The so called ”Dirac cone” turns into four bands with the twofold degenerate zero mode where electrons and holes are located 2 . The zero-mode dispersion is very small, of the order of 20 meV, in the main-axis direction because the interlayer interaction is weak… CONTINUE READING
