dc.description.abstractThis is a study of the structural and electronic behavior and properties of graphene on α-quartz and α-sapphire using Density Functional Theory. We construct initial structures using the above 2 substrates, place a layer of graphene on them and subsequently allow the atoms to relax. After relaxation we study any structural changes, band structures, density of states, charge density to determine the electronic properties of the entire structure. Eventually this study will help in the search for good substrates for graphene based transistors.en
