Abstract [en]

The main goal of this project was to write a review about different quantum Hall effects. This review focuses on the integer and relativistic quantum Hall effect in graphene. The quantum Hall effect is a newly discovered phenomena that was experimentally observed in 1980 and relativistic quantum Hall effect in graphene was observed in 2005. This project takes a theoretical approach to describe the quantum Hall effects and graphene itself. Experiments has shown that for very strong magnetic fields applied to 2D systems, the Hall resistance becomes quantized, RH=h/ne2 and only depends on the charge of the electron and Planck's constant, two fundamental constants of nature. This sets a new standard on how to define resistance, and gives a good tool for precise measurements of the fine structure constant.
