Graphene defects tracked as they creep and climb
Researchers in the U.K. and Japan have succeeded in tracking dislocations with unprecedented resolution as the defects move through graphene — a sheet of carbon just one atom thick. The work may help scientists better understand plasticity in 2-D structures and how dislocation motion affects the mechanical properties of graphene and other technologically important materials.
