    Detail:         Abstract:

                     Dirac electrons lead to unusual electronic and optical properties in graphitic materials (graphene, carbon nanotubes). Near-field optical nanoscopy is a powerful tool to study material properties at the nanometer scale. In this talk, I will first introduce the scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) technique. Then I will discuss layer-stacking domain walls in bilayer graphene and its novel valley transport behavior. I will also talk about near-field optical imaging of Luttinger-liquid plasmons in single-walled carbon nanotubes.

    Organizer:   Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale



Highlight of USTC

According to the latest Nature Publishing Index (NPI) Asia-Pacific and The Nature Publishing Index China, University of Science and Technology of China tops in Chinese universities again. The rankings are based on the number of papers that were published in Nature journals during the last 12 months.
