Abstract

We review recent studies on the orbital diamagnetism of graphenes. Graphene exhibits a huge diamagnetic susceptibility due to the orbital motion of electrons, which is quite different from the conventional Landau diamagnetism. We study the electric response of graphene to arbitrary magnetic objects outside, to show that the interacting force can be macroscopic even though the system consists of just one atomic layer.
