Pinching off electron edge-channels in graphene

Recent progress in techniques for microfabrication of 2-Dimensional layered materials have led to the emergence of “van der Waals“ (vdW) heterostructures. The disruptive aspect of the new assembly processes, which exploit the Van der Waals forces between atomic layers, is that the experimentalist can simply pick up 2-D crystals, put them into contact and stack them layer-by-layer, using relatively inexpensive micro-manipulation equipment.

4. Tales from the Ices

When William Giauque developed cryogenics in the early 1930’s, he aimed at testing the third principle of thermodynamics, one formulation of it being : “The entropy of a perfect crystal at absolute zero is exactly equal to zero”. As nearly a century of work has shown, this statement is not precise enough, and there are nowadays experimental systems which, even very close to absolute zero, still fluctuate greatly, i.e. retain finite entropy.
