This chapter describes phonon spectra and vibrational thermodynamic characteristics of graphene nanofilms. The relaxation of interlayer distances and force constants in the process of nanofilm formation is investigated. Moreover, the influence of the nanofilm structure (ABAB, ABCABC) on the thermodynamic properties of these systems is studied. Characteristics of the Van Hove singularities for phonon modes having different polarization are investigated.
