Abstract

We analyzed the spin-lattice relaxation time of graphene systems in the presence of disorder. We consider the case of strong scatterers (unitary limit). The effect of the impurity concentration on the spin-lattice relaxation time is analyzed. We find different behaviors of the spin-lattice relaxation time for different impurity concentrations.
