Researchers in Russia and England claim they have discovered the world’s first single-atom-thick fabric.
The fabric may represent a new class of materials — so thin they are only two-dimensional — and may lead to computers made from a single molecule.
The graphene fabric is the first two-dimensional fullerene. The research team demonstrated an “ambipolar field-effect” that makes graphene a transistor under ambient temperature and pressure conditions.… read more
