  • MIT 2D materials graphene MIT.nano electron microscope molecular photograph

    At the border of the physical dimensions

    A.J. Roan, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    An international team led by Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers has discovered a method of imaging what goes on at the boundary of 2D and 3D materials, down to the level of individual atoms. In recent years, engineers have managed to develop ways to modify the properties of few "two-dimensional" materials – considered such by existing as a single atom in thickness. For practical applications however, two-dimensional materials like graphene and hexagonal boron n... Full story
