Holey graphene as Holy Grail alternative to silicon chips

Graphene, in its regular form, does not offer an alternative to silicon chips for applications in nanoelectronics. It is known for its energy band structure, which leaves no energy gap and no magnetic effects. Graphene antidot ...

Nanodiamonds as photocatalysts

Climate change is in full swing and will continue unabated as long as CO2 emissions continue. One possible solution is to return CO2 to the energy cycle: CO2 could be processed with water into methanol, a fuel that can be ...

Blue phosphorus—mapped and measured for the first time

Until recently, the existence of 'blue' phosphorus was pure theory. Now, an HZB team has examined samples of blue phosphorus at BESSY II for the first time and mapped their electronic band structure. They report that it represents ...
