when adjacent layers of graphene
are rotated slightly from one to
the next. The team’s latest study
raises a number of questions for
future research, including
whether the new phenomenon
can be controlled, and how the
observed effects may impact
proposed carbon-based devices.

The world-leading graphene re-
search team from the Georgia
Institute of Technology and the
CNST has taken yet another step
toward elucidating the unique
and often unexpected properties
of this two-dimensional carbon
material—which, because of its
potential applications to sensors
and other electronic devices, has
received intense international
interest and was the subje...
