Carbon nanotubes and graphene have been the subject of intense scientific research since their relatively recent discoveries.
This book introduces the reader to the science behind these rapidly developing fields, and covers both the fundamentals and latest advances.
Uniquely, this book covers the topics in a pedagogical manner suitable for undergraduate students.
The book also uses the simple systems of nanotubes and graphene as models to teach concepts such as molecular orbital theory, tight binding theory and the Laue treatment of diffraction. Suitable for undergraduate students with a working knowledge of basic quantum mechanics, and for postgraduate researchers commencing their studies into the field, this book will equip the reader to critically evaluate the physical properties and potential for applications of graphene and carbon nanotubes.
