  1. Graphene is a rapidly rising star on the horizon of materials science and condensed-matter physics. This strictly two-dimensional material exhibits exceptionally high crystal and electronic quality, and, despite its short history, has already…
  2. Topological insulators are electronic materials that have a bulk band gap like an ordinary insulator, but have protected conducting states on their edge or surface. The 2D topological insulator is a quantum spin Hall insulator, which is a close…
  3. In this work we briefly describe the most relevant features of WSXM, a freeware scanning probe microscopy software based on MS-Windows. The article is structured in three different sections: The introduction is a perspective on the importance of…
  4. Spintronics, or spin electronics, involves the study of active control and manipulation of spin degrees of freedom in solid-state systems. This article reviews the current status of this subject, including both recent advances and well-established…
  5. This article reviews the basic theoretical properties of graphene, a\ntwo-dimensional allotrope of carbon, with unusual electronic properties. The\nelementary excitations are linearly dispersing Dirac fermions with vanishing\nelectronic density of…
  6. Graphene is the two-dimensional building block for carbon allotropes of every other dimensionality. We show that its electronic structure is captured in its Raman spectrum that clearly evolves with the number of layers. The D peak second order…
  7. Graphene has been attracting great interest because of its distinctive band structure and physical properties. Today, graphene is limited to small sizes because it is produced mostly by exfoliating graphite. We grew large-area graphene films of the…
  8. The article reviews work on graphene monolayers adsorbed on metal surfaces. Graphene layers on metals have been prepared by surface segregation of carbon and by decomposition of hydrocarbons. The films are often not rotationally aligned to the metal…
