In recent years, the family of two-dimensional materials has expanded from simple graphene to include almost 1,000 materials that exist—or are predicted to exist—in an atomically thin form. These 2-D materials are flexible and transparent, and their unusual properties make researchers eager to apply them in electronic devices. Electrical engineer Tomás Palacios of Massachusetts Institute of Technology believes ultrathin . . .
