Graphene has been attracting tremendous attention
ever since its discovery in 2004 [1] largely because of its
fascinating electronic properties. Among these are high
electron mobility at room temperature that is mostly
independent of doping, and carriers that behave like
massless Dirac fermions [2]. Graphene consists of a
