Contribution of FORTH/ICE-HT to the groundbreaking discovery of Graphene - the perfect atomic lattice
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences jointly to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene". More information, intended for the general public, on graphene and the relevant work of the Laureates can be found here.
Professor Costas Galiotis, Director of FORTH/ICE-HT and his associates from both the Institute (Dr. J. Parthenios) and the University of Patras (Assistant Professor K. Papagelis) collaborate closely with the group of the Laureates in Manchester and some results of their joined work are described in the following publications:
- "From Graphene to Carbon Fibres: Mechanical Deformation and Development of a Universal Stress Sensor" by Frank, O., Tsoukleri, G., Riaz, I., Papagelis, K., Parthenios, J., Ferrari, A. C., Novoselov, K.S., and Galiotis, C., Arxiv.org (2010).
- "Compression Behavior of Single-Layer Graphenes" by Frank, O., Tsoukleri, G., Parthenios, J., Papagelis, K., Riaz, I., Jalil, R., Novoselov, K.S., and Galiotis, C., ACS Nano, 4(6): 3131-3138 (2010).
- "Subjecting a graphene monolayer to tension and compression" by Tsoukleri, G., Parthenios, J., Papagelis, K., Jalil, R., Ferrari, A.C., Geim, A.K., Novoselov, K.S., and Galiotis, C., Small, 5 (21): 2397-2402 (2009).
- "Uniaxial strain in graphene by Raman spectroscopy: G peak splitting, Gruneisen parameters, and sample orientation" by Mohiuddin, T.M.G., Lombardo, A, Nair, R.R., Bonetti, A., Savini, G., Jalil, R., Bonini, N., Basko, D.M., Galiotis, C., Marzari, N., Novoselov, K.S., Geim, A.K., and Ferrari, A.C., Physical Review B, 79 (20): Art No. 205433 (2009).
The research activity at FORTH/ ICE-HT and the University of Patras in Greece is concerned with the study of the mechanical behaviour of graphene in both tension and compression but also the production and study of nanocomposites based on graphene. Within that framework the group also examines in some detail the Physics of graphene by means of laser Raman spectroscopy.
