Local laser excitation and temperature readout from the intensity ratio of Stokes to anti-Stokes Raman scattering signals are employed to study the thermal properties of a large graphene membrane. The concluded value of the heat conductivity coefficient kappa approximately 600 W/(m.K) is smaller than previously reported but still validates the conclusion that graphene is a very good thermal conductor.

Measurement of the optical conductivity of graphene.
Graphene yielded a spectrally flat optical absorbance in agreement with a constant absorbance of pialpha, or a sheet conductivity of pie2/2h, predicted within a model of noninteracting massless Dirac fermions, which is explained by including the effects of doping and finite temperature, as well as contributions from intraband transitions.

Universal optical conductance of graphite.
The calculations within the Slonczewski-Weiss-McClure model explain well why the interplane hopping leaves the conductance of graphene sheets in graphite almost unchanged for photon energies between 0.1 and 0.6 eV, even though it significantly affects the band structure on the same energy scale.

Macroscopic graphene membranes and their extraordinary stiffness.

Fine Structure Constant Defines Visual Transparency of Graphene
It is shown that the opacity of suspended graphene is defined solely by the fine structure constant, a = e2/hc � 1/137 (where c is the speed of light), the parameter that describes coupling between light and relativistic electrons and that is traditionally associated with quantum electrodynamics rather than materials science.
