Calendar of Physics Talks Vienna

Structure, electronic and magnetic properties of graphene/metal interfaces
Speaker:Dr. Mikhail Fonin (Fachbereich Physik, Universität Konstanz)
Abstract:In this talk we will review the recent results on graphene films epitaxially grown on 3d − 5d transition-metal surfaces focussing mainly on their atomic structure, aspects of chemical interaction both with the substrate and with adsorbates, and the electronic structure of graphene at the interface. We discuss a possibility to prepare sandwich-like structures in the form of intercalates as a possible way to controllably tailor the electronic properties of graphene. Recent works on the templated growth of magnetic nanostructures on graphene will be also presented. *Work performed with Philipp Leicht, Muriel Sicot, FB Physik, Uni Konstanz, and Yuriy Dedkov, FHI Berlin.
