New view on electron interactions in graphene

Electrons in graphene—an atomically thin, flexible and incredibly strong substance that has captured the imagination of materials scientists and physicists alike—move at the speed of light, and behave like they have no ...

X-ray experiments suggest high tunability of 2-D material

To see what is driving the exotic behavior in some atomically thin - or 2-D - materials, and find out what happens when they are stacked like Lego bricks in different combinations with other ultrathin materials, scientists ...

Clear leads to fully transparent devices

Large-area, two-dimensional semiconductors wired through transparent oxide conductors produce high-performance see-through electronics.

Engineering electron pathways in 2-D topological insulators

In a recent article published in Physical Review Letters a research collaborative has reported new insights into the electronic conduction and interference on 2-D topological insulators—an exotic kind of insulator that ...

Stretching to perfection of 2-D semiconductors

Compressing a semiconductor to bring atoms closer together or stretching it to move them farther apart can dramatically change how electricity flows and how light is emitted. Scientists found an innovative way to compress ...
