Maria Vozmediano (Madrid, Spain): "Strained graphene"

The two most exotic features of graphene are, first, its morphology: A true two dimensional crystal with exceptional properties of elasticity and rigidity; and, second: Its low energy electronic excitations. They are described by a massless two dimensional Dirac equation. Lattice deformations couple to the electronic excitations  in the form of effective gauge fields what gives rise to a plethora of new phenomena in the frontier between high energy and condensed matter physics. In this talk we will review some of the most salient properties of strained graphene including potential applications and topological responses.
