Jarillo’s and Levitov’s groups demonstrate unusual thermoelectric response in graphene

— hanw; October 12th, 2011 |

  In research that has just been published in the journal Science, MIT researchers found that shining light on a sheet of graphene, treated so that it had two regions with different electrical properties, creates a temperature difference that, in turn, generates a current. Graphene heats inconsistently when illuminated by a laser, Jarillo-Herrero and his
