Title: 
Holographic Graphene in a Cavity
Abstract: 
The AdS/CFT correspondence or "holography" has been established as a valuable tool for studying systems at strong coupling. Graphene has been conjectured to be such a system, and holographic models exist which structurally resemble graphene. In this seminar I will review the basics of holography, before discussing how one can consider, holographically, the problem of placing graphene in a cavity, in the hope of pushing it further to strong coupling.
