Atom/Molecule van der Waals Interaction with Graphene

Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)


We examine the van der Waals interaction between Graphene and an atom/molecule to the second order in the Coulomb interaction between the electrons of the two systems involved. Our analysis extends to dipole–dipole terms of the mutually polarized systems, including plasma nonlocality of the Graphene.
