'… the first of its kind for the field of graphene, and a very successful book. Starting from the basics, at student level, it guides the reader to the most important results in the field of graphene physics to date … This book is not only a brilliant systematic overview of the state-of-the-art in graphene research to date; it also offers a program of research for the next few years.' Dr Kostya Novoselov, University of Manchester, co-recipient (together with Professor A. Geim) of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics
Graphene is the thinnest known material, yet stronger than diamond, with potentially significant applications in nanotechnology. This book systematically presents the basic concepts of graphene physics, assuming undergraduate-level quantum and statistical physics training. It provides an important introduction for graduate students in nanoscience and nanotechnology, physicists and materials science researchers.
