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 […]

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 […]
