Abstract

Charge carriers in graphene mimic massless relativistic Dirac particles.
We shall discuss transport phenomena in this material with an emphasis on the
new properties that arise due the relativistic character of charge
excitations.
The p-n junctions, unveiled in recent experiments, provide a tool to probe
relativistic dynamics in strong electric and magnetic fields [1], as well as
the interplay of particle-like and hole-like Quantum Hall edge states [2].
