Nanotechnology wonderland on graphene

Scientists have demonstrated the formation of interconnected carbon nanostructures on graphene substrate in a simple assembly process that involves heating few-layer graphene sheets to sublimation using electric current that may eventually lead to a new paradigm for building integrated carbon-based devices.

Cold atoms simulate graphene

Scientists at ETH Zurich used a set of laser beams to create a honeycomb-like structure similar to that found in graphene. By loading ultracold atoms into this optical lattice, they can simulate electronic properties of this promising material. Such experiments may be used to identify electronic properties of materials which have yet to be discovered.

Graphene gazing

The world's thinnest material absorbs a well-defined fraction of visible light, which allows the direct determination of the fine structure constant.
