Abstract

Graphene is an extremely thin crystalline membrane, which also makes it perhaps the most anharmonic material in nature. Recent experiments and models are reviewed exploring the consequences of this anharmonicity, with emphasis on the dependence of graphene's stiffness on its environment. In addition, the role of in plane strains in determining graphene's electronic mobility will be discussed, studied by combining new experimental results and models for the deformations of graphene in different setups.
