Low Dimensional Systems

Low dimensional systems, in which one or more spatial dimensions are small enough to restrict the quantum mechanical wavefunction of electrons contained inside, exhibit some of the most diverse and intriguing physical phenomena seen in all of condensed matter physics. One low-dimensional material that has received considerable interest since its discovery less than a decade ago is graphene. Made from a two-dimensional network of carbon atoms just one atom thick, this simple structure has truly remarkable properties. One of the key factors in the advancing the use of graphene in commercial devices is the ability to produce it at an industrial scale, and one of the most potentially useful processes for this is chemical vapor depositions.
