News
 

Simulations of how surface roughness changes over time have revealed that surfaces are worn down by the action of debris particles between them.

News
 

By combining graphene with nano-ribbons of gold, researchers have developed an ultrasensitive biosensor for detecting disease-causing proteins.

News
 

The twist angle between layers of 2D semiconductors provides a ‘tuning knob’ to turn them into an exotic quantum material.

News
 

Novel simulations show that atom-sized steps on a substrate have the remarkable ability to keep monolayer crystal islands in alignment as they grow.

News
 

Researchers have shown that excitons can be trapped in the moiré pattern created by twisting a pair of 2D semiconductors.
