Seeing Moire in Graphene

The ability to determine the rotational orientation of graphene sheets and map strain is useful for understanding the electronic and transport properties of multiple layers of graphene, a one-atom thick form of carbon with potentially revolutionary semiconducting properties.

Sea Turtle Travel: Study Shows How Hatchlings Use their Flippers to Move Quickly on Sand

Georgia Tech researchers conducted the first field study showing how endangered loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings use their limbs to move quickly on a variety of terrains in order to reach the ocean.

Making Contact: New Study Quantifies the Electron Transport Effects of Placing Metal Contacts onto Graphene

Using large-scale supercomputer calculations, researchers have analyzed how the placement of metallic contacts on graphene changes the electron transport properties of the material as a factor of junction length, width and orientation.
