Electron irradiation to minimize loops in graphene

By / August 24, 2010

Loops (seen above in blue) between graphene layers can be minimized using electron irradiation (bottom). (Credit: ORNL) According to a press release, researchers at Oak Ridge National Lab have discovered how loops develop in graphene, an electrically conductive high-strength low-weight material that resembles an atomic-scale honeycomb. The nanoscale simulations are bringing scientists closer to using…

Individual Carbon Atoms in Motion

By / April 9, 2009

This video is no more, or less, than watching for the first time, in real-time, individual carbon atoms being knocked off the edges of a hole in a sheet of graphene while other atoms break and recreate bonds as they shift around in response, looking for the most stable position.
