We present a first-principles calculation of the optical properties of armchair-edged graphene nanoribbons (AGNRs) with many-electron effects included. The reduced dimensionality of the AGNRs gives rise to an enhanced electron-hole binding energy for both bright and dark exciton states (0.8-1.4 eV for GNRs with width approximately 1.2 nm) and dramatically changes the optical spectra owing to a near complete transfer of oscillator strength to the exciton states from the continuum transitions… Expand
Excitonic properties of hydrogen saturation-edged armchair graphene nanoribbons.
TLDR
The "effective width" method associated with the reported AGNR family effect is introduced to understand the electronic structures and is confirmed by analyses of the optical transition spectra and the exciton wavefunctions. Expand

Excitonic States in Narrow Armchair Graphene Nanoribbons on Gold Surfaces
Narrow graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) exhibit electronic and optical properties that are not present in extended graphene. Most importantly, they possess band gaps in the order of a few electron volts,Expand
Experimental Observation of Strong Exciton Effects in Graphene Nanoribbons
TLDR
A strong exciton effect with binding energy up to ∼700 meV in liquid-phase-dispersed GNRs with a width of 1.7 nm and an optical band gap of ∼1.6 eV is reported, illustrating the intrinsically strong Coulomb interactions between photogenerated electrons and holes. Expand
Optical Excitations and Field Enhancement in Short Graphene Nanoribbons.
TLDR
The optical spectra of elongated graphene nanoflakes are dominated at low energy by excitations with strong intensity, comprised of characteristic coherent combinations of a few single-particle transitions with comparable weight, ensuring tunability in a large frequency range. Expand
Exciton effects in strained armchair graphene nanoribbons
The exciton effects in 1-nm-wide armchair graphene nanoribbons (AGNRs) under the uniaxial strain were studied within the nonorthogonal tight-binding (TB) model, supplemented by the long-range CoulombExpand

TLDR
I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
