STRAINS AND GAUGE FIELDS IN GRAPHENE
Friday, November 5, 12.00h IFAE: Dr. Francisco Guinea, Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (CSIC), Spain
Lattice deformations couple to electrons in graphene by giving rise to an effective gauge field[1,2]. This unique feature leads to the possibility of modifying the electronic properties by applying strain to the lattice[3,4]. The main properties of the interaction between electrons and long wavelength lattice deformations will be reviewed.
