Over the past few years, the physics of low dimensional electronic systems has been revolutionized by the discovery of materials with very unusual electronic graphene has taken center stage due to its relativistic-like electron dynamics and potential applications in nanotechnology. Moreover, the recent discovery (hBN) is a nearly-ideal substrate for high mobility graphene devices has enabled a new generation of quantum transport and optoelectronic experiments in graphene-talk I will review our recent experiments on graphene on hBN devices, where we explore different aspects of the "Dirac-ness" of charge carriers in graphene: phenomena to a new type of quantum spin Hall effect.
