Diatoms serve as tiny silica scaffolds for inexpensive and scalable growth of molybdenum disulfide flakes

By April Gocha / September 26, 2016

Researchers at the University of Manchester in the U.K. have devised a strategy that gives new use to diatom shells, using the silica shells as scaffolds for building atomic sheets of molybdenum disulfide.
