Creating 'Designer Electrons'
Researchers from Stanford University and the U.S. Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have created the first-ever system of "designer electrons" - exotic variants of ordinary electrons with tunable properties that may ultimately lead to new types of materials and devices. The handcrafted, honeycomb-shaped structures were inspired by graphene, a pure form of carbon widely heralded for its potential in future electronics.
