Dynamics of Carbon Nanomaterials

We are studying the electrical and electrothermal dynamics of graphene in order to better understand this unique two-dimensional quantum systems, and also to explore potential high-frequency device applications. This work is in collaboration with Prof. Philip Kim (Columbia) and Prof. Xu Du (Stony Brook) and is supported by NSF-DMR and AFOSR.

Previous work used terahertz spectroscopy to probe the high frequency behavior of single-walled carbon nanotubes.
