Two dimensional materials are of great interest for fundamental science and applications. There have been extensive studies on monolayer graphene where unique properties result from the symmetry of the honeycomb lattice. Few-layer graphene systems are of interest as they offer interesting opportunities to study effect of electronic interactions while monolayer graphene was largely understood in terms of independent electron picture. In addition, few-layer graphene offers an opportunity to break simple symmetries and study their consequence. I will also describe how geometric phases within a multiband system few-layer graphene system could be understood.
Mandar has been a faculty member at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, in Mumbai, since January 2006 in the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science. His area of research is nanoscale physics. Before coming to TIFR he was a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard University. Prior to that, he got his Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University.
