Professor Edward Wolf of the Department of Applied Physics has just published a new book Graphene: A New Paradigm in Condensed Matter and Device Physics an introduction to the science and possible applications of Graphene, the first one-atom-thick crystalline form of matter.
A single layer of graphite, a hexagonal network of carbon atoms, has astonishing electrical and mechanical properties. It supports the highest electrical current density of any material, far exceeding metals copper and silver. The book describes the unusual physics of the material.
Professor Wolf is author of more than 100 refereed research papers and, more recently, of five monographs in areas related to nanotechnology as well as to superconductive electron tunnelling spectroscopy.
