Black and white graphene changes electronic properties

A team led by Dr Artem Mishchenko and Sir Andre Geim from The University of Manchester have found that the electronic properties of graphene change dramatically if graphene is placed on top of boron nitride, also known as ‘white graphite’.

They have published their findings in Nature Physics.

The university…

Manchester explains unusual electronic and optical behaviour in graphene

Researchers at the University of Manchester found a mechanism that could explain unusual electronic and optical behaviour in graphene, and another route to give it a bandgap, writes our technology editor Steve Bush.

The work involved spreading mono-layer flakes of graphene on a thin (20nm) layer of boron nitride…
