3. “Seeing” electrochemical growth of ultra-thin metal films

Ultra-thin metallic films have attracted considerable interest in many scientific fields, including physics, chemistry and biology. They have numerous industrial applications, in catalysis, nano-­electronics, coatings in metallurgy, surfaces of implants in medicine... The technique of grazing incidence X-Ray diffraction is well adapted for elucidating the surface structure and morphology of such films at the atomic scale. Full text.

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.
