Coulomb Excitations and Decays in Graphene-Related Systems provides an overview of the subject under the effects of lattice symmetries, layer numbers, dimensions, stacking configurations, orbital hybridizations, intralayer and interlayer hopping integrals, spin-orbital couplings, temperatures, electron/hole dopings, electric field, and magnetic quantization while presenting a new theoretical framework of the electronic properties and the electron-electron interactions together.
This book presents a well-developed theoretical model and addresses important advances in essential properties and diverse excitation phenomena. Covering plenty of critical factors related to the field, the book also addresses the theoretical model which is applicable to various dimension-enriched graphene-related systems and other 2D materials, including layered graphenes, graphites, carbon nanotubes, silicene, and germanene.
The text is aimed at professionals in materials science, physics, physical chemistry, and upper level students in these fields.
