Abstract:

Under this grant a study was carried out of the electronic and optical properties and modeling of intercalated graphite. A major contribution of this work has been the formulation of a model for the electronic structure, applicable to compounds of arbitrary stage and intercalant. The results of this model have been applied to the interpretation of Fermi surface and magnetoreflection measurements also carried out under this grant. These measurements thus provide detailed information on the effect of intercalation on the electronic structure and on the Fermi surfaces of intercalated graphite. Results on infrared spectroscopy of intercalated graphite provide information on the lattice mode structure, complementing the findings on the electronic structure. The use of Raman spectroscopy to study adsorbed species on graphite surfaces is demonstrated. Author
