Researcher's chiral graphene stacks break new ground

Until very recently, 'handedness' in large area films with atomic scale precision hadn't been investigated. A research team now has broken new ground in this area, developing a chiral atomically thin film only 2-atoms-thick, through circular stacking of graphene.
