The thinnest possible layer of silica glass has been prepared on a graphene surface, giving scientists the first opportunity to directly observe the atomic arrangement of this amorphous material (Nano Lett., DOI: 10.1021/nl204423x). Researchers led by David A. Muller of Cornell University and Ute Kaiser of the University of Ulm, in Germany, were trying to grow graphene on . . .
