The growth of carbon fabrics is multidisciplinary and is said to physics, chemistry, biology, technologies and engineering. The examine on carbon fabrics has more often than not all in favour of points of primary physics as they particular electric, thermal and mechanical homes acceptable for the variety of functions. The electrons in graphene and different derived carbon fabrics behave as dirac fermions because of their interplay with the ions of the lattice. This path has resulted in the invention of latest phenomena similar to Klein tunneling in carbon dependent reliable kingdom structures and the so-called half-integer quantum corridor impact.

Graphene, thus synthesized and transferred onto a glass substrate, has shown 90% optical transmittance [34]. 3 Chemical and Thermal Exfoliation of Graphite Oxide Some recent success in regards to graphene includes chemical exfoliation through the formation of derivatized graphene sheets such as GO [35, 36], r-GO [37], or halogenated graphene, solventassisted ultrasonic exfoliation [38]. Graphite oxide was first prepared in the nineteenth century [39], and since then it has been mainly produced by the following methods pronounced by Brodie, Staudenmaier [40] and Hummers [41].

Large-area, high quality graphene can also be grown by thermal CVD on catalytic transition metal surfaces such as nickel and copper [21, 22]. Reina et al. prepared single- to few-layer graphene on polycrystalline Ni film of 1-2 cm2 [23]. The Ni film (500 nm thick) was evaporated on a SiO2/Si substrate and was annealed in Ar+H2 atmosphere at 900 to 10000°C, for 10 to 20 minutes. This annealing step created Ni grains of 5 to 20 μm in size. After CVD at 900 to 10000°C for 5 to 10 minutes, using 5 to 25 sccm CH4 and 1500 sccm H2, graphene was found to form on the Ni—the size of each graphene being restricted by the Ni grain size.
