The latest fashion: Graphene edges can be tailor-madeThe latest fashion: Graphene edges can be tailor-made
Rice University theory shows it should be possible to tune material’s properties
Theoretical physicists at Rice University are living on the edge as they study the astounding properties of graphene. In a new study, they figure out how researchers can fracture graphene nanoribbons to get the edges they need for applications.  (January 23, 2015)
