We have studied theoretically, using density functional theory, several material properties when going from one C layer in graphene to two and three graphene layers and on to graphite. The properties we have focused on are the elastic constants, electronic structure (energy bands and density of states), and the dielectric properties. For any of the properties we have investigated the modification due to an increase in the number of graphene layers is within a few per cent. Our results are in… CONTINUE READING
