Figure 1.(Left) Very high quality single crystal monolayer graphene was obtained on single crystal copper foil, and (right) multilayer graphene (from 2 to 10 layers) on a single crystal copper-nickel alloy foil. Figure 2. The research team contributed a model and theoretical calculations on ‘colossal grain growth’ that was observed and studied through experiments. Professor Shin drew attention to the importance of the initial ‘texture’ of the polucrystalline metal foils and the role this plays in colossal grain growth.

Information loss by asymmetry and small aperture. (A) A stone falling in a pond produces full circular waves that are centered on the impact point, and those waves would back propagate onto that same point if time could be reversed. Using this time-reversal argument, if one generates back propagating circular waves from a limited arc, they will not necessarily focus at the center. (B) Representation of how diffraction effects compete with focusing for a beam of different initial size, that is different aperture.
