The recent discovery of graphene, a two dimensional carbon crystal, has generated a lot of excitement in condensed matter community because of its unusual electronic properties as well as its potential applications.   The secret lies in the relativistic character of its charge carriers, which make graphene the ideal system where relativistic quantum physics (QED) and condensed matter physics meets.  The novel physical properties resulting from the Dirac nature of quasiparticles in graphene will be discussed, as well as its potential for next generation electronic devices.
