We find experimentally that the optical sheet conductance of graphite per graphene layer is very close to (pi/2)e2/h, which is the theoretically expected value of dynamical conductance of isolated monolayer graphene. Our 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… Expand
Vertical absorption edge and temperature dependent resistivity in semihydrogenated graphene
We show that for graphene with any finite asymmetry in the on-site energy between the two sublattices (Δ), the optical absorption edge is determined by the Δ. The universal conductance will be brokenExpand
On the universal ac optical background in graphene
Latest experiments have confirmed the theoretically expected universal value πe2/2h of the ac conductivity of graphene and have revealed departures of the quasi-particle dynamics from predictions forExpand
Stretching induced Hall current and conductance anisotropy in graphene
We evaluate the effect of stretching on the optical conductance of graphene. It is found that the low energy (Dirac regime) isotropy that leads to the “universal conductance” is lost. MoreExpand
Anisotropy of graphite optical conductivity
The graphite conductivity is evaluated for frequencies between 0.1 eV, the energy of the order of the electronhole overlap, and 1.5 eV, the electron nearest hopping energy. The in-plane conductivityExpand
Optical conductance and transmission in bilayer graphene
We present a theoretical study of the optoelectronic properties of bilayer graphene. The optical conductance and transmission coefficient are calculated using the energy-balance equation derived fromExpand
Optical constants of graphene layers in the visible range
We show that the optical constants of graphene in the visible range can be estimated by means of a very simple procedure involving their consistence with universal optical conductivity andExpand
Optical properties of graphene superlattices.
TLDR
The optical responses of graphene superlattices subjected to a periodic scalar potential are theoretically reported and behaviors of the optical conductivity are explained microscopically through the analysis of the elements of optical matrices and effectively through a simple model, which is based on the Pauli blocking mechanism.

Optical and electronic structure of quasi-freestanding multilayer graphene on the carbon face of SiC
We report the optical and electronic properties of multilayer graphene films grown epitaxially on the carbon face (C-face) of 4H-SiC probed using spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) and angle-resolvedExpand
Terahertz graphene optics
AbstractThe magnitude of the optical sheet conductance of single-layer graphene is universal, and equal to e2/4ħ (where 2πħ = h (the Planck constant)). As the optical frequency decreases, theExpand
Universal layer number in graphite
Graphene absorbs light in accordance with the fine-structure constant α  ≃ 1/137. The α value is universal in the sense that it is unrelated to material parameters but solely related to theExpand

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.
