Forget Graphene, Silicene Is Here to Blow Your Mind [Materialist]

2 years agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

Remember how graphene, the single-atom thick layer of carbon was so slick it was going to change everything? Well it looks like silicene is here to steal the spotlight. Reachers have just made the first sheet of single-atom thick silicon. More »

Engineers envision 2-dimensional graphene metamaterials and 1-atom-thick optical devices

Academics / General Science : Science Daily (3 years ago)

Engineers have proposed the possibility of two-dimensional metamaterials. These one-atom- thick metamaterials could be achieved by controlling the conductivity of sheets of graphene, which is a single layer of carbon atoms. Read Post

Graphene layering lets you mind the bandgap

Academics / General Science : Nobel Intent (5 years ago)

Graphene, a hexagonal lattice of carbon atoms that's only a single atom thick, has only been a hot topic in condensed matter physics for a few years, and scientists are still discovering new uses for it. A letter in Nature describes... Read Post

World's Strongest Material Goes from Conductor to Insulator When Stretched

Technology / Gadgets : Gizmodo (11 hours ago)

You've heard all about the wonder properties of graphene, so come meet its one dimensional cousin, carbyne. A chain of single carbon atoms to graphene's two-dimensional layer of atoms, carbyne has some pretty amazing properties of i... Read Post
