"Tunable Optical Properties of Graphene"

Abstract. Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms, exhibits novel two-dimensional electronic behavior. Optical spectroscopy provides a powerful tool in the study of graphene in physics. In this talk, I will show how we can use infrared spectroscopy to probe gate-dependent interband transitions as well as intraband transitions. I will also discuss how we can use electrical gating to control inelastic light scattering processes in graphene.
