Expanding Flatland Since its discovery and isolation some 5 years ago, research on graphene has exploded. The sheets of carbon atoms, just one atom thick, exhibit a vast array of properties—mechanical, optical, and electrical—that make it an ideal test bed to probe fundamental problems in physics, as well as lending itself to a wide portfolio of applications. Geim (p. 1530), the discoverer of this remarkable material, reviews recent advances and discusses what other developments may be in store… Expand

The rise of graphene.
TLDR
Owing to its unusual electronic spectrum, graphene has led to the emergence of a new paradigm of 'relativistic' condensed-matter physics, where quantum relativistic phenomena can now be mimicked and tested in table-top experiments. Expand
Towards wafer-size graphene layers by atmospheric pressure graphitization of silicon carbide.
TLDR
The new growth process introduced here establishes a method for the synthesis of graphene films on a technologically viable basis and produces monolayer graphene films with much larger domain sizes than previously attainable. Expand
The structure of suspended graphene sheets
TLDR
These studies by transmission electron microscopy reveal that individual graphene sheets freely suspended on a microfabricated scaffold in vacuum or air are not perfectly flat: they exhibit intrinsic microscopic roughening such that the surface normal varies by several degrees and out-of-plane deformations reach 1 nm. Expand
Macroscopic graphene membranes and their extraordinary stiffness.
TLDR
A new and highly reliable approach for making graphene membranes of a macroscopic size and their characterization by transmission electron microscopy is described and it is found that long graphene beams supported by only one side do not scroll or fold, in striking contrast to the current perception of graphene as a supple thin fabric. Expand
Substrate-induced bandgap opening in epitaxial graphene.
TLDR
It is shown that when graphene is epitaxially grown on SiC substrate, a gap of approximately 0.26 eV is produced and it is proposed that the origin of this gap is the breaking of sublattice symmetry owing to the graphene-substrate interaction. Expand
Large-scale pattern growth of graphene films for stretchable transparent electrodes
TLDR
The direct synthesis of large-scale graphene films using chemical vapour deposition on thin nickel layers is reported, and two different methods of patterning the films and transferring them to arbitrary substrates are presented, implying that the quality of graphene grown by chemical vapours is as high as mechanically cleaved graphene.

Control of Graphene's Properties by Reversible Hydrogenation: Evidence for Graphane
TLDR
This work illustrates the concept of graphene as a robust atomic-scale scaffold on the basis of which new two-dimensional crystals with designed electronic and other properties can be created by attaching other atoms and molecules. Expand
Preparation and characterization of graphene oxide paper

Graphene oxide paper is reported, a free-standing carbon-based membrane material made by flow-directed assembly of individual graphene oxide sheets that outperforms many other paper-like materials in stiffness and strength. Expand

TLDR
Graphene oxide films' ability to withstand high in-plane tension as well as their high Q-values reveals that film integrity is enhanced by platelet-platelet bonding unavailable in pure graphite. Expand
