Graphene and Fullerenes

A semi-metal with minor overlap between the valence and the conduction bands is called graphene. The detailed structure of graphene is described as an allotrope of carbon consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. The properties of graphene include electronic, optical, saturable absorption, nonlinear kerr effect and quantum dots. An allotrope of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, tube, and many other shapes is called fullerene. Spherical fullerenes or Buckminsterfullerene resemble the balls used in association football.

Graphene is the basic structural element of many other allotropes of carbon, such as graphite, diamond, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. Production of graphene depends on its growth on a liquid metal matrix. Bilayer graphene exhibits the anomalous quantum Hall effect, a tunable band gap and potential for excitonic condensation. Significant applications of graphene are material/device applications, including solar cells, light-emitting diodes, touch panels and smart windows or phones. Advanced study of fullerenes has been now implemented in tumor research.
