Graphene is one of the solid phases of carbon, appearing as a single-layer honeycomb lattice. This may be planar or tubular, etc.
The modern discovery of graphene (Geim and Novoselov obtained a Nobel price for the discovery, which they made freely available without patenting!)
Review:
The 2+1 dim Dirac equation is used in modeling graphene:
