How massless electrons tunnel through energy barriers in a carbon sheet called graphene Electrons moving in graphene behave in an unusual way, as demonstrated by 2010 Nobel Prize laureates for physics Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who performed transport experiments on this one-carbon-atom-thick material. A review article, just published in EPJ B´, explores the theoretical and experimental results to date of electrons tunneling through energy barriers in graphene. As good an...
