Movie “Getting in shape”

This short animated cartoon with integrated real life footage shows the SPRINGfetopen project and their consortium partners. The cartoon illustrates the commencing of research on graphene in the past 10 years and what SPRING aims to achieve in the ambition to improve spin-based logic devices for everyone. In addition, you can get an insight into the work and the […]

The first atomic-resolution images of extraterrestrial molecules

Meteorites are fragments of asteroids (and, potentially, comets) that reach the Earth’s surface intact. They’re leftovers from the solar system’s formation, providing clues to its history in the molecules they contain. Thanks to our latest research, published today in Meteoritics and Planetary Science, we can now read those clues a little better.   Most primitive meteorites […]

Graphene nanoribbons for emerging quantum technologies

In the last decades, a mathematical description of symmetries in nature called topology has been applied to describe and predict new electronic and magnetic properties of materials. A very simple aspect of topology connects a symmetry in the atomic structure of a crystal with a class of materials. Many materials that we know or use […]
