Electrons in graphene behave like light, only better

(Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science) Researchers have directly observed -- for the first time -- negative refraction for electrons passing across a boundary between two regions in a conducting material. They observed the effect in graphene, demonstrating that electrons in the material behave like light rays, which can be manipulated by such optical devices as lenses and prisms.
