Sandler Brings Her Research to Australia

Nancy Sandler presents at Monash University.

By Ryan Flynn NQPI editorial intern Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute 2019 Spring Newsletter At one atom thick, graphene is the thinnest, flattest material known to date. It is also the most impermeable, and strongest material in the world. It is electrically conductive, flexible, and incredibly lightweight. These attributes make […]

Physicists Uncover Geometric Correlations in Self-Grown Graphene Nanoribbons

Dawei Zhai and Nancy Sandler

Two Ohio University physicists who were part of an international collaboration reported results of a study on self-grown graphene nanoribbons in the paper, “Linking interlayer twist angle to geometrical parameters of self-assembled folded graphene structures,” published recently in 2D Materials, a journal of the Institute of Physics. The work proposes […]

Alum, Professor Predict Ways to Better Manipulate Electrons in Graphene

Drs. Mahmoud Asmar and Sergio Ulloa

Two physicists predict that electronic currents of graphene can be split into two parts, thereby allowing scientists to manipulate the properties of graphene in new ways. Ohio University alum Dr. Mahmoud Asmar (Physics PhD ’15), and Dr. Sergio Ulloa, Professor of Physics & Astronomy, and a member of OHIO’s Nanoscale […]

Physicists Author Paper to Unlock Secrets of Graphene

Drs. Nancy Sandler and Daiara Faria and doctoral student Dawei Zhai

New insight into flexible material one atom thick will help scientists to untangle key intrinsic properties of graphene not easily understood until now. Graphene, a crystalline slice of graphite (a form of carbon), is perhaps one of the most important materials being studied worldwide. Ohio University Associate Professor Dr. Nancy […]

Botte: New Process Allows Coal to Produce Graphene

By Angelita Faller At 200 times stronger than steel and only one atom thick, graphene is both the hardest existing substance and the thinnest material ever obtained. Graphene is light, bendable, transparent, and extremely conductive. “Graphene has excellent properties. The market applications are enormous,” said Gerardine Botte, the Russ Professor […]
