A two-dimensional honeycomb lattice harbours a pair of inequivalent valleys in the k-space electronic structure, in the vicinities of the vertices of a hexagonal Brillouin zone, K(±). It is particularly appealing to exploit this emergent degree of freedom of charge carriers, in what is termed 'valleytronics'. The physics of valleys mimics that of spin, and(More)
Two-dimensional atomic sheets of carbon (graphene, graphane, etc.) are amenable to unique patterning schemes such as cutting, bending, folding and fusion that are predicted to lead to interesting properties. In this review, we present theoretical understanding and processing routes for patterning graphene and highlight potential applications. With more(More)
We present a computational investigation of free-standing graphene bilayer edge ͑BLE͒ structures, aka " fractional nanotubes. " We demonstrate that these curved carbon nanostructures possess a number of interesting properties, electronic in origin. The BLEs, quite atypical of elemental carbon, have large permanent electric dipoles of 0.87 and 1.14 debye/ Å(More)
In purely bent ZnO microwires, the excitons can be effectively driven and concentrated by the elastic strain-gradient towards the tensile outer side of the purely bent wire. Experimental and theoretical approaches are combined to investigate the dynamics of excitons in an inhomogeneous strain field with a uniform elastic strain-gradient. Cathodoluminescence(More)

Optimizing the electronic structures and carrier dynamics in semiconductors at atomic scale is an essential issue for innovative device applications. Besides the traditional chemical doping and the use of homo/heterostructures, elastic strain has been proposed as a promising possibility. Here, we report on the direct observation of the dynamics of exciton(More)
Graphene is an interesting electronic material. However, flat monolayer graphene does not have significant gap in the electronic density of states, required for a large on-off ratio in logic applications. We propose here a novel device architecture, composed of self-folded carbon nanotube-graphene hybrids, which have been recently observed experimentally in(More)
This article describes a new procedure for generating and transmitting a message--a sequence of optical pulses--by aligning a mask (an opaque sheet containing transparent "windows") below a microfluidic channel in which flows an opaque continuous fluid containing transparent droplets. The optical mask encodes the message as a unique sequence of windows that(More)
This letter describes the formation of two-dimensional ͑2D͒ crystals of dipolar particles ͑TN͒ made of electrostatically charged, joined, millimeter-scale Teflon ͑T͒ and nylon-6,6 ͑N͒ spheres, and the separation of these crystals, as a distinct phase, from a mixture of TN and similar, capacitively charged particles that were coated with gold ͑Au 2 ͒. The(More)
Two-dimensional atomic sheets such as graphene and boron nitride monolayers represent a new class of nanostructured materials for a variety of applications. However, the intrinsic electronic structure of graphene and h-BN atomic sheets limits their direct application in electronic devices. By first-principles density functional theory calculations we(More)
Cellular therapies are becoming increasingly important in treating cancer, hematologic malignancies, autoimmune disorders, and damaged tissue. These therapies are becoming more effective and are being used more frequently, but they are also becoming more complex. As a result, quality testing is becoming an increasingly important part of cellular therapy.(More)
