Electronic Transport in Graphene



This chapter provides an experimental overview of the electrical transport properties of graphene and graphene nanoribbons, focusing on phenomena related to electronics applications. Section 2.1 gives a brief description of the band structure. Section 2.2 discusses the effect of various scattering mechanisms in 2D sheets and nanoribbons and compares the characteristics of exfoliated and synthesized graphene. The physics of high-bias transport in graphene field effect transistors is described in Sect. 2.3. Section 2.4 gives a brief summary and outlook.
