Eun-Ah Kim and Paul McEuen discover 'electrical highways' in graphene

LASSP faculty Eun-Ah Kim and Paul McEuen are taking two approaches to understanding bilayer graphene and its potential as a semiconductor. Prof McEuen leads an experimental group that revealed the presence of structural solitons in bilayer graphene. Prof Kim's group predicted that these solitons will act as ‘electrical highways’ allowing electrons to shoot from one end of the graphene sheet to the other.
