Experiment Approaches and Simulation Methods

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


This chapter explained the experimental and simulation methods used in the research of this work, including the preparation and transfer of graphene materials, the methods of processing and characterization, the basic theory of molecular dynamics simulation and first principle calculation for the research of mechanical and electronic transport properties. The experiment and the simulation methods used in the subsequent chapters are based on the contents of this chapter.
