Research Information

In the Bolotin group we study electrical and mechanical properties of nanoscale materials. We are particularly interested in graphene, a recently discovered two-dimensional form of carbon.

We probe electrons in graphene, which happen to behave just like zero-mass relativistic particles, via electrical transport measurements. We also explore mechanical properties of graphene, both the toughest and the lightest material in existence, using MHz-frequency electromechanical resonators fabricated out of individual graphene sheets. Finally, we are interested in applications of nanomaterials and collaborate with Graphene Laboratories Inc, a start-up company, towards developing fu
nctional graphene membranes.
