Scientists confirmed the theory of very strong magneto-optical resonance in graphene

Controlling infrared and terahertz waves using magnetic and electric fields is one of the extraordinary difficulties in physics that could revolutionize optoelectronics, telecommunications, and...
Graphenes now go monolayer and single crystalline

Graphenes now go monolayer and single crystalline

An international team of scientists from the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials (CMCM), within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at UNIST, has recently...
