Scientists explore new atomic frontiers

Studying atom-thick layers of MXenes leads to new discoveries Metal Tech News – October 5, 2022

Researchers at Drexel University in Philadelphia have succeeded in using a new method of analysis to peel back the atomic layers of two-dimensional metallic compounds known as MXenes (pronounced max-eens), opening the door to development of a wide range of new materials.

Two-dimensional materials are substances with a thickness of a few nanometers or less. Electrons in these materials are free to...
