Naked molecules dancing in liquid become visible

Visualizing polymers moving inside tiny graphene pockets

25-Sep-2017

Moving, vibrating and leaping molecules make up our world. However, capturing their movement is not an easy task. IBS scientists at the Center for Soft and Living Matter, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), were able to see the movement of molecules stored inside a graphene pocket ...

Large single-crystal graphene is possible!

The target of large, cheap and quick graphene synthesis achieved: 5 x 50 cm2 and beyond

27-Jul-2017

Boasting the conductivity, strength and flexibility we wished for, graphene was proposed as one of the most likely substitutes for silicon and other materials. Its launch into the market however is still slow. What is curbing graphene from industrial applications? One factor is that top quality ...

Explaining how 2-D materials break at the atomic level

23-Jan-2017

Cracks sank the 'unsinkable' Titanic; decrease the performance of touchscreens and erode teeth. We are familiar with cracks in big or small three-dimensional (3D) objects, but how do thin two-dimensional (2D) materials crack? 2D materials, like molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), have emerged as an ...

Electric transport across molybdenum disulfide grain boundaries

29-Jan-2016

The Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics (CINAP) within IBS has reported results correlating the flake merging angle with grain boundary (GBs) properties, and proven that increasing the merging angle of GBs drastically improves the flow of electrons. This correlates to an increase in the ...
