Two-dimensional (2D) materials are referred to sheet-like materials containing only a single layer or several layers of atoms in the through-thickness direction. Since the first successful isolation of monolayer graphene, a large number of 2D materials have been produced, such as graphene, silicene, BN, MoS2, etc. Among these, graphene has attracted much attention due to its unique electronic, mechanical, thermal, and optical material properties. In this work, we adopted molecular dynamics modeling method to investigate the mechanical and thermal properties of graphene, with respect to the various size, strain, temperature, defects and doping conditions.
