Ultrafast Electronic and Structural Phenomena in Graphite and Graphene


Motion of ions and their interplay with bonded charge govern the functionality of materials. The scattering processes that undergo conduction carriers, such as electron-phonon or electron-electron interaction, influence their response to ultrafast stimuli such as time-varying electric fields or light pulses in terms of electrical mobility and bulk mechanics. Graphite and its derived materials, nanotubes, graphene, fullerenes, diamondoids, display a rich variety of electronic and mechanical properties which have found numerous exploitations in modern technology [1], and which are still stimulating intense research for future applications [2].
