Rippling and crumpling of disordered two-dimensional membranes

(Physique Théorique)


Motivated by experimental observations of ripples in suspended graphene,
we analyze elastic properties of two-dimensional crystalline membranes with various types of randomness [1]. We demonstrate that random fluctuations of the membrane curvature induced by static disorder lead to a non-monotonous scaling of the bending rigidity, causing the transition between the flat and crumpled phases. We also explore the effect of critical fluctuations of a membrane on electronic transport through the system in the presence of electron-phonon coupling [2,3].
