Physicists Uncover Hidden Electronics in Deformed Graphene Membranes

Physicists Uncover Hidden Electronics in Deformed Graphene Membranes

By Amanda Biederman NQPI editorial intern Distinguishing identical twins can be a difficult task at first. Physics & Astronomy professor and Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute member Nancy Sandler encounters a similar scenario when dealing with seemingly identical carbon atom pairs. Sandler recently authored two papers in Nano Letters that […]
