Abstract

Graphene has been demonstrated to have enormous potential applications. The realization of the applications is closely related to the fabrication of graphene nanostructures. In this paper, the recent studies of graphene nanostructure fabrication by particle beam (laser beam, electron beam and ion beam) irradiation have been reviewed, for which the usage of atomic simulation methods is focused on. Firstly, the interaction mechanism between particle beam and graphene is discussed. Then based on the different interaction mechanisms, the atomic simulation models were built to figure out the feasibility of using particle beam irradiation to dope graphene, join graphene and fabricate graphene nanopore. The limitations of the present models are analyzed at last, and the possible future research directions are forecasted. This review aims at stimulating further research on this subject.
