In physics and materials research, some of these ambitious goals are to make ordinary-sounding objects with extraordinary properties: wires that can transport power without any energy loss, or quantum computers that can perform complex calculations that today’s computers cannot achieve. And the emerging workbenches for the experiments that gradually move us toward these goals are 2D materials — sheets of material that are a single layer of atoms thick.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width="3/4"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1602005353517{padding-top:...
