Graphene Lends Microscopy Support
Graphene’s single-carbon-atom thickness, exceptional mechanical strength, and electrical conductivity are driving researchers to develop all sorts of nanoelectronic devices, supercapacitors, and polymer-based composites. Zonghoon Lee, Ki-Joon Jeon, and coworkers of the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have now demonstrated graphene’s utility in an altogether different application: as a specimen support in transmission electron microscopy (Nano Lett., DOI: 10.1021/nl901664k). Conventional TEM carbon . . .
