Graphene is unique in providing a wide spectrum of physical properties that promise superior electrical characteristics, such as effective magnet fields, elimination of charges valley degeneracy, the ability to change the local electronic potential and scattering control. Graphene has a high elastic constant, superior breaking strength and mechanical distortions, such as ripple formation that can influence the advantageous qualities. New devices based on manipulation of local strains, as one of the application examples, can be created.
