Observing the random diffusion of missing atoms in graphene

Imperfections in the regular atomic arrangements in crystals determine many of the properties of a material, and their diffusion is behind many microstructural changes in solids. However, imaging non-repeating atomic arrangements is difficult in conventional materials. Now, researchers at the University of Vienna have directly imaged the diffusion of a butterfly-shaped atomic defect in graphene, the recently discovered two-dimensional wonder material, over long image sequences.

The hunt for white aluminium

When the technical sciences meet world-famous Danish design, you get - the colour white. Designers are working with scientists to develop a method for creating white aluminium surfaces USING nanopores. Something which has never been achieved before, but which designers the world over have been hankering after for a very long time.
