AI finds 2-D materials in the blink of an eye

Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science, a part of The University of Tokyo, demonstrated a novel artificial intelligence system that can find and label 2-D materials in microscope images in the blink of an eye. ...

Graphene mapping 50 times faster

Graphene has created high expectations, as a strong, ultrathin, two-dimensional material that could also be the basis for new components in information technology. There is hence a huge need for characterization of graphene ...

2-D materials: Arrangement of atoms measured in silicene

Silicene consists of a single layer of silicon atoms. In contrast to the ultra-flat material graphene, which is made of carbon, silicene shows surface irregularities that influence its electronic properties. Now, physicists ...

Creating new opportunities from nanoscale materials

A hundred years ago, "2d" meant a two-penny, or 1-inch, nail. Today, "2-D" encompasses a broad range of atomically thin flat materials, many with exotic properties not found in the bulk equivalents of the same materials, ...
