  • Graphene is an atom-thick sheet of carbon in which electrons behave as if they have no mass. Atomic carbon layers have been grown epitaxially — that is, perfectly aligned with atoms in an underlying crystal surface — on metals and semiconductors for decades, so why the fuss lately? Well, in the past few years much work in this field has revolved around graphene obtained by ‘exfoliating’ or peeling it from graphite. By mounting exfoliated graphene on insulating silicon dioxide, researchers… CONTINUE READING
