Optical Properties of Graphene

Optical properties such as dipole moment, oscillator strength, absorption and energy for graphene are available in an interactive Wolfram style demonstration. This Demonstration plots the observables relevant for understanding the optical properties of graphite and related materials (carbon nanotubes) over the hexagon of the 2D Brillouin zone (BZ) of a single graphitic sheet (graphene):...
