11/12/08 1 ECE 495N, Fall’08 ME118, MWF 1130A – 1220P HW#7: Due Friday Nov.21 in class. Problem 1: Below is some recent experimental data on a sheet of graphene reported by one of the leading groups in the field ( http://arxiv.org/abs/0805.1830 ). It plots the "conductivity" σ obtained from the conductance G, using the relation G = W / L , W and L being the width and length respectively. We wish to try to understand this data based on the expressions developed in this course (you may want to review Problem 1 of HW#3): 0 [ ( ) ( )] ( ) eq N N dEDE U DE f E +∞ −∞ = −− (1) 2 () eq f q G dEM E U h LE λ λ∂ +∞ −∞  =  +  (2) where is the mean free path and f eq ( E ) = 1 1 + exp( / kT ) .
