It is shown that for monolayer graphene electrons are confined on a perfect two dimensional surface. The implications for the electronic properties of corrugated graphene are discussed in view of a derivation of the constrained relativistic dynamics for the massless carriers in two dimensions. Surface curvature is related to a series of phenomena with practical applications such as curvature induced p-n junctions, band gap opening and decoherence. We also establish a bending free energy by… CONTINUE READING
