Graphene and Other Two-Dimensional Materials

We found a new class of materials which is now referred to as 2D atomic crystals. Such crystals can be seen as individual atomic planes “pulled out” of bulk, 3D crystals.

Despite being only one atom thick and unprotected from the immediate environment, these materials are stable under ambient conditions, exhibit high crystal quality and are continuous on a macroscopic scale.
