Graphene: A Peculiar Allotrope Of Carbon
Keywords:Graphene, Allotrope, Quantum Hall effect, Nanomaterial
Graphene is a two dimensional one atom thick allotrope of Carbon. Electrons in grapheme behave as massless relativistic particles. It is a 2 dimensional nanomaterial with many peculiar properties. In grapheme both integral and fractional quantum Hall effects are observed. Many practical application are seen from use of Graphene material.
