  • This 2-D nanosheet expands like a Grow Monster

    Grow Monsters. Expandable water toys. Whatever you call them, they're plastic-like figurines that swell when placed in water. New materials science research borrows from this concept; only instead of water, engineers discovered that tiny crystal lattices called "self-assembling molecular nanosheets" more

  • Creating a 2-D platinum magnet

    University of Groningen physicists have induced magnetism in platinum with an electric field created by a paramagnetic ionic liquid. As only the surface of the platinum is affected, this creates a switchable 2D ferromagnet. Platinum is used a lot in jewellery and electronics. Although this precious more

  • Charging ahead to develop better batteries

    Cellphones go dark during important conversations because a battery hasn't been recharged. Or the automotive industry revs up with excitement for a new battery-powered vehicle, but it needs frequent recharging. Or yardwork is delayed because the battery for your string trimmer is dead. Researchers a more

What is graphene?

What is graphene? Graphene is the world's first 2D material which was initially isolated in 2004. It was discovered after scientists at The University of Manchester separated one atomic layer of graphite using simple sticky tape. This short animation takes a look at how graphene was isolated and ... more

2-D layered devices can self-assemble with precision

Video shows layered, self-assembled graphene oxide sheets with synthetic proteins patterned on squid ring teeth made into an actuator with substantial curvature. The second segment shows the same device using graphene oxide only. There is no movement.Credit: Melik Demirel,/Penn State. more
