    Discover the Unique Electron Transport Properties of Graphene

    The Graphene Science Handbook is a six-volume set that describes graphene’s special structural, electrical, and chemical properties. The book considers how these properties can be used in different applications (including the development of batteries, fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, and supercapacitors based on graphene) and produced on a massive and global scale.

    Volume One: Fabrication Methods

    Volume Two: Nanostructure and Atomic Arrangement

    Volume Three: Electrical and Optical Properties

    Volume Four: Mechanical and Chemical Properties

    Volume Five: Size-Dependent Properties

    Volume Six: Applications and Industrialization

    This handbook describes the fabrication methods of graphene; the nanostructure and atomic arrangement of graphene; graphene’s electrical and optical properties; the mechanical and chemical properties of graphene; the size effects in graphene, characterization, and applications based on size-affected properties; and the application and industrialization of graphene.

    Volume three is dedicated to graphene’s electrical and optical properties and covers:

    • Graphene and graphene nanoribbons for use in high-frequency transistors, energy-efficient electronics and photonic devices
    • The interface of graphene/high-κ dielectrics
    • The strain-induced modifications of plasmons in graphene
    • A possible advanced physical framework for treating graphenic structures
    • Recent progresses in the electric lens based on graphene-like materials
    • The thermal and thermoelectric transport properties of graphene
    • A numerical method for simulating the electromagnetic field interaction with single-layer graphene and more
