More Materials Go 2-D
With its atomic thinness and outstanding electronic and mechanical properties, graphene stormed the materials research world about five years ago, repeatedly grabbing headlines in the mainstream and scientific press alike. Large numbers of scientists set about probing this one- or few-atoms-thick form of carbon and devoted themselves to developing its applications. Clearly, this nearly two-dimensional (2-D) material is fascinating. But when it comes to atomically thin or nearly atomically thin materials, graphene isn’t the only . . .
