The electronic properties of a single layer of graphite, graphene1)–4) have attracted much attention due to the “relativistic” character of π-electrons near the Fermi level. The energy band structure of graphene exhibits a linear energy dispersion relation around the two inequivalent, hexagonal corners of the first Brillouin zone in the k-space (the K and K′ points).5),6) The wavefunction (Hamiltonian) of π-electrons has two component (a 2 × 2 matrix) form due to the fact that the unit cell of… CONTINUE READING
