"A Random Walk to Graphene"
Abstract: Graphene - a single plane of carbon atoms - is probably the simplest
material one can imagine. On the other hand, graphene has acquired so many
superlatives to its name that people started calling it a wonder material. I
will discuss how this research started and, then, try to explain why
graphene attracts so much attention these days.
