Graphene is giving new impetus to the electronics industry because its band structure allows its properties to be dramatically altered and modified by chemical or electrochemical doping methods. This book provides a comprehensive source of information about graphene as a phenomenon, its physics and its mechanical and chemical properties in the light of the latest scientific and technological discoveries. The major focus of the book is on military and special applications since that is where the biggest investments are made.
