Atom-thick ma­te­rial

Down to Earth - - SCIENCE -

A MA­TE­RIAL made of a sin­gle layer of ger­ma­nium atom has been cre­ated. Named ger­manene, the "two-di­men­sional" ma­te­rial is likely to have unique elec­tri­cal and op­ti­cal prop­er­ties and could be widely used in the elec­tron­ics in­dus­try. The ma­te­rial is also likely to have in­su­la­tion qual­i­ties re­quired for use in quantum com­put­ing. New Jour­nal of Physics, Septem­ber 10
