  • carbon nanostructures, carbon-based in molecular logic devices;
  • graphene, electronic structure and properties;
  • chirality in graphene and a ‘Berry phase’;
  • chemical doping of graphene, and electron concentrations;
  • graphene nanoribbons, band gap inversely proportional to width;
  • quantum-chemical, edge functionalization and band edge shift;
  • nanotube-based, stimuli-sensitive anchored to nanotube;
  • conjugated, polyaromatic, arranging into supramolecular structures;
  • Wannier–Mott excitons, in inorganic narrow band gap, and carbon nanotubes;
  • electronic device miniaturization, for processible semiconductors
